The P170 is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone for recording of overheads, percussions, acoustic guitars and other strings. Its lightweight 1/2-inch true condenser transducer diaphragm delivers outstanding clarity and transient response.

It also works well for recording loud guitar amps. I've tested it side-by-side with a condenser mic (CM25 MkIII) and there's no discernible difference in tone. The pad switch seems handy, but haven't had to use it yet.
Was curious about stereo recording, so bought a set of matched RØDE M5s, but those were comparatively pretty noisy & tinny, so returned them and bought a second P170. Even though they're not 'matched' there's no obvious difference in output or tone (bought 5 months apart) - and they work fantastically on a stereo bar in standard stereo configurations.
They're very slim, quite long, and feel quite sturdy and high-quality. The mount provided fits well, but you could probably knock it out accidentally with little force.
Overall, very impressed with these mics.
Takes high levels well to - used for both Acoustic guitars and drum overheads so far...
Dont sound very different to my now elderly AKG C451/CK5...
