Guess that mic?

    Ok, on the Dave Matthews at Radio City music hall DVD, what mic is he using. Here is a good youtube video.


    My bud has very similar vocals and I'm beefing up my mic cabinet, so time to see what Dave is using.

    So you want a small capsule back electret condenser microphone that doesn't have enough pop proofing?? Doesn't appear to be a Shure, Electro-Voice, AUDIX, which leaves few others. Either way, it's a small capsule condenser microphone not a dynamic, IMHO as that's the way it sounds. Just make sure it has a switchable pad & a low-cut would be a good additional quality as well. That's all you need to know. It's a condenser microphone of a small capsule design. And it does not appear to be a Neumann KMS104/105 either.

    Popping microphones. My favorites. Just shut up and sing.

    I have seen many photos and vid of Matthews using the Neumann KMS140, but that doesn't look like one there... though it is hard to be sure.

    It does look Beyer-like... Don't know for sure.

    This page lists their on the road gear.


    To me it does not look like a KMS104. Maybe it is , but with a different head grill.

    Yeah, it's definitely not the 104.

    The mic clip is a Sennheiser. I believe that it's an e945 as previoualy stated. This is a very good live mic in terms of rejection, but you have to know how to stay on it.

    I think you guys have it... Although in terms of the scale of the head, it looks like it could be the 935. Either way, I'd say one of the two is what it actually looks like.


    So much for the above rant about the condenser mic... :roll:
