Hey guys. Does anybody know of a good handheld mic for a classical bass/baritone to use. I would buy a Neumann KMS105 ideally, but it's not in the budget, so I'm thinking a Shure Beta 87. Any suggestions?
i suppose you could try those that Steve suggested, but they'd be a little awkward to hold in your hand. Not to mention kind of funny looking. (Plus you'd need to be pumping some iron before using the RE20 as a hand-held...)
haha. allow me to explain i am an entering freshman at Berklee College of Music, and my principal instrument is voice (being a baritone/bass). One of the requirements is bringing a microphone to use in performance, and I mainly sing classical music.
Freeform! Sorry about my little brain fart. I noticed you were considering the beta 87. That's a great mic, and if you like it go for it. If you want, you can also look at akg 535, it's one of my faves for deeper vox live.
