Had one, did a few shows, doesn't pass metal detection so i would opt for something better.
Sound is pretty weak imho

I've had variable results.  For one show it amazingly outperformed a set of AT943s.  Other times not so good.  I'm keeping mine in the arsenal for use as a backup or for special situations.

I have one that I've used quite a bit - I like it, and think it's capable of pulling some nice tapes.

It's not as good as a "full rig" or certainly DPAs + d:vice (not even close) but it's a pretty nice piece of gear for the convenience/price. I've done a few shows with one. And I did get through a metal detector just fine.

Metal detector shouldn’t be a concern really. It’s just a thing that you use with your phone...

Tell that to security at Ceasars Palace in Vegas or even at The Well's Fargo Center in Philly
where it sets it off. Sure, at some venues it wont set off, the ones where you can get your full size rig
in easy anyway. I made a decent, not killer recording of The Who and yet a decent but not killer of Karla Bonoff
then i sold mine. "I need killer like a crack addict needs crack" said a taper i know :-)

I think what detroit lightning is saying is--you don't need to put it through the detector, just put it in the dish with your keys and phone and if they ask what it is just give 'em some BS.  I'm really good at BS'ing.   ;) ;D

Yup. Can only speak to my experience with it, but yeah, throw it into the dish with the other 5000 things in your pockets.
