The Wonderful World of Mics

Discussion in 'Microphones (live or studio)' started by VincentValour, Jul 25, 2008.

  1. I'm just trying to get familiar with microphones in general and was just wondering what are the most popular mics around, what are they typically used for, and (if any sound clips are available) what do they sound like? This would make a great resource. I'm pretty green so the only mics I really know at this point are your basic SM58, SM57 and NT1A. Any info on any other typical in studio/live mics would be greatly appreciated!

    You can find some samples here by searching for "mics on kick" and / or "mics on snare"...

    If all you know is the sound of Shure SM series of microphones, that's all you need to know.

    They should hire me.
