Samson's C01 has all the performance features that you demand from a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone. It's the perfect solution for recording vocals, acoustic instruments and for use as and overhead drum mic. Featuring a large, dual-layer 19mm diaphragm with a cardioid pickup pattern, the C01 produces a smooth flat frequency response. Its two ultra-thin sensor membranes pick up far more detailed sounds than any dynamic coil. The result is a mic that captures accurate, detailed and smooth audio with warm bass tones and extended top end. You'll hear the strings and wood of your guitar, the breath and resonance of a singer, or the brassy shimmer of a ride cymbal with crystal clear clarity. The C01's design includes a heavy gauge mesh grill, gold-plated XLR connecter and an LED for monitoring its 48V of phantom power. It also comes with a swivel mount that can be attached to any standard mic stand. In addition, an optional SP01 spider shock mount is available for increased mic and sound stability. Samson's C01 is one of the best values available from a professional recording microphone.

One little point if you don't realize, this mic requires phantom powering. So if you are not intending to use it with a mixer which has that option, you will need to purchase an external phantom power supply. This will probably add £40 or more to the cost to get it going.
The Samson is a condenser mike and therefore you will need phantom power, unless you get the usb version. It comes with a safe and practical screw fitting for a mike stand, but this is not for quick release - you would need to sort out some sort of clip. Construction seems solid and well made and it comes in a substantial case.
I was going to delve a little deeper in my pocket originally as I needed a good quality microphone to record my vocals. Then, just by chance, this Samson condenser microphone came along and, quite honestly, I think it's superb. It gives a wonderful smooth, rounded analogue sound.
Quite frankly, for the money, I don't think it can be bettered.
