« Great Vocal mic for live shows! »Publié le 01/31/11 à 19:43
It's frequency response is between 40 -18000 Hz and it has a pretty solid frequency response all around. There aren't any frequencies that are particularly emphasized over another which makes it a good mic for catching the full spectrum of a source signal.
I know this mic primarily as a vocal mic for both singers and public speakers. I've found that it works great in both settings but especially well for singers. It's great and giving high output without feeding back or giving too much of the muddier signals. It's definitely tailor-made for vocals.
That being said, it can also be used on a lot of other things including guitars, amps, and horns (just make sure you have pads). However, realistically this isn't worth buying for those as you can use an SM57 or 58 and have mostly the same results for less money. That is not true of the vocals, however. This sounds much better. It gives you far more room to move around and can let you really wail. Unlike the 58 it doesn't require that you come close to touching the microphone with your mouth in order to get a full enough sound. This is a good thing for vocalists.
Overall, this mic is probably only worth it for vocalists or perhaps sound engineers who work with a lot of vocalists. Otherwise it's more expensive than a lot of other dynamic mics in its range, and isn't as useful. It's certainly a cut above as a vocal mic.
