It's solved the problem of needing a pre amp for recording on the pooter too. I usually have mic input at 10 and turn the backing track down in the mix. With this little gem I had the mic input at 4 to stop it clipping. I can retire the skype mic, clothes peg, duct tape version.

Sorry for the dumb question, but where do you clip the mic when you are recording?

Update. Not using this as much since I got the BM800. I still use it occasionally as it gives a distinctive sound. It works great on the Bari as it doesn't pick up the really low frequencies and gives a bright vintage feel. It gives the alto an old fashioned, 78rpm sort of vibe.

You mean it's crap?
In a good way! there's much that can be done with slightly grungy sounding mics- i have quite a few for harmonicas (where the holy grail seems to be emulating low quality Chicago taxi mics, which is what Little Walter etc actually used, from the 1950s!) & singing into
