« The best microphone in the world »Published on 05/11/14 at 06:28
A (older than the Shure SM58!) Absolute, the oldest standard, unchanged from the early fifties to the present day, still for sale
Bravo Made in England!
It is an almost universal microphone, nothing wrong, the rest is a matter of taste, it magnifies all acoustic instruments, but also the electric guitar amps, and wonderfully all percussion instruments (drums, congas, maracas and other triangles).
In terms of voice, obviously! of course! it is still gorgeous, try a couple with another standard, the Shure SM7B.
I tried many other micro, small or large membranes, there 's nothing to do ... This is the perfect microphone for my Guild F412 (12 strings, background flamed maple without dam handle 3 maple / mahogany sides / mahogany, spruce Sitka AAA, ebony fingerboard ... A monstrous sound and projection, "simply the best acoustic 12 strings ever made" ect ..) Really bewitching, truth mingles with the magic.
