This is a most flexible mic.
Although it is listed as a cardiod pattern mic, the phase cancellation port is on the body of the mic as a series of slots. If you cover slots on the body, you can tune the mic from hypercardiod (all slots open) to moni (all slots covered) in 24 stages.
Additionally it has a bass roll off switch (probably 15 dB)
This mic is warm and natural.
It is intended for live vocals, but I have used it for recording as well
Over 40 years old and fully functioing.
People are said to use thse mics for hammers with affecting their operation.
Atom bomb proof, sor sure.
