I am gonna go with the saftey standby of the Nuemann U87, but I will never buy this mic because it is too expensive and i am too clumsy
I think that if I opened up my mic locker and had only one mic in it, I'd be pretty pissed!
RE-20. Or maybe a Lawson L47. Or maybe a Brauner Valvet. Or maybe a...
I think the Rode K2 is my all around favorite mic for vocals be it singing or voiceovers. I can work the pattern to bring more or less of the room into the sound, and the tube sound can't be beat. I'm using one on a female vocalist (who had a string of hits in the 50's and really knows how to sing, no autotune or pitch correction needed on her!) this week and it just sounds great. I've only added a touch of EQ to compensate for the room (we're recording on location in a far less than ideal space).
Initially, I bought a pair for stereo mic'ing of ensembles, but once I tried them on vocals, I was hooked. I upgraded the tubes to a pair of vintage telefunken's and it made them sound even better.
If I had to choose 1 of my mics for vocals it would be the Soundelux E47C. But, having to choose 1 is no fun.
I know this reply is several months late but, what does everyone think of the SM86??
I'm just asking because I never see any feedback on this mic and we use them a lot - for both stage and studio.
Shure SM7b - hands down.
No doubt....Heil PR-40. Tough, sensitive and sounds fantastic. We are replacing RE20s in our broadcast facilitlies with these.
Are you selling your RE20's?
We maybe selling them to a Latino group buying some of our properties.
We'll know after the first of the year.
Either the C12 or ELAM251.....RE-20? are you kidding me?
