The mic is new, so they are being made currently. Peluso doesn't have all that many microphones out on the market, rather I know them best for making capsules. The P 28 has a cardioid polar pick up pattern and will pick up frequencies between 20 Hz and 24 kHz. It comes with it's own dedicated power supply, as well as a shock mount, hard case for the mic, and an aluminum case for all of the components. This mic is to be used strictly in the studio and for no other purposes.
The Peluso P 28 can be used for all sorts of applications, and is the perfect replacement for those who want a microphone with this type of look and sound, but can't necessarily afford a real C12 or 251 (or something similar). I've only used the P 28 for recording vocals, and it did a damn good job for this use. I recorded a female singer, and it sounded perfect for her voice, but unfortunately I don't have anything to compare it to as of yet. It definitely captured the high end extremely well, leading me to believe that it might not be the best mic for a male vocalist, but like I said I can't say for sure. It definitely does have a bright sound, and it lacks the depth that you'd get with a C 12 or a higher end tube pencil mic. Having said this, the P 28 still sounds really good, especially when you consider the extreme difference in price between the P 28 and something like a C 12. The Peluso P 28 is definitely suitable for either a home or professional studio, as it is one of those rare mics that has a professional sound and could still be manageable in terms of price for a home studio owner. I highly recommend checking out the P 28 for anyone interested in microphones of this kind.
