Small-diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone with Both Phantom and 9V Battery Power and Hypercardioid Adapter. It`s loud. Blows out a SM-57 or 58. I have a faux-leather pouch and I`ll through in an XLR cable. It is a great recording unit. Check out the many videos and reviews on the web and you`ll see what I mean. Thanks. Call, text, send e-mail or yell. I`m here.
