    Jacob Hansen recently used this mic to reamp the guitars on the album of my band. It sounds great, these mics are ridiculously cheap, I think I'm gonna afford one soon for my guitar sounds. 57 + A51 in front of guitar cabs should work well.
    Any experience with those ? Samples ?

    I wanted to buy one but at the end I bought the S-7 model...it's really similar but more guitar oriented. I'm very happy and I use always with the sm57.
    Cons...it's very hard to find them here in Europe..I bought mine used here in Italy. They are very diffused in Scandinavia but the shops there don't sell very easilly outside.

    I know the dealers and I spoke directly with Larry Villella, the founder of ADK, about the best place to buy his mics. It's very easy to find them in Scandinavia but not in Italy for example. I found a good deal for mine (160€ brand new).

    A lot of ADK stuff are awesome and super cheap.
    I bought already 3 of them. Sold my A51 and got a S7.
    You should get a S51 cause there is no pad on A51.

    Most of the vocals (make you mine, breath in coma,... ) on my player are the A51 : http://www.brainworksstudios.com/works.html

    Here is a good dealer :

    The other vocals mics are also pretty nice, the Hamburg and Vienna. But watch out the vienna is super bright.
