I'm thinking of moving up to a better vocal mic for some live acoustic recordings for an artist in the near future. I've been tossing around a lot of ideas - but wanted to ask around here to get opinions. I've been using an SM58 for the vocals.
Here is a clip of a show I recorded for him last year - it was with the 58 on the vocals.
If any of you can listen to the clip and direct me towards a mic - I'd love the help. Maybe the clip will help in the choice.
ps - If I should post this in another forum please advise!
I miss record stores and people that love music.
Sorry - I revamped the post - don't know what I was thinking when I first posted that. Talk about an un answerable question. Please revisit the (now edited) post again if you have a chance. Thanks!
I like the Neumann, but he may sound too wooly with it, and any bleed from the guitar may muck it up further. Just my opinion.
I would try the Shure Beta86. I think that is has good body, and good detail on top. Again, just my opinion. It's a cardioid too.
EV RE-20 or Sennhieser 421
Look at the EV ND767, it's about $150, and worth every penny! Great live tone, excellent feedback rejection, super strong signal, and almost zero handling noise.
Sheet, There is no Beta 86 do you mean SM 86??

just one 58 on that recording - plus a direct line for the guitar.
The mouth organ too?
sm58 is well very much
how many do you spend for your sm58 mic?
