A good multi-pattern mic

I have owned this Mic for about 3 years. I use it to record acoustic guitar, electric guitar and some percussion. I also use it in live settings. It's a great sounding mic and because it is multi pattern it gives you a lot of options. The only negative is it doesn't do a great job on recording vocals. The C1 is much better for vocals.
