Studio Microphones at Paul Bothner Music
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | October 5, 2018
There is a huge selection of microphones on the market, and they all have different purposes. You get mics for karaoke, for live use and for studio use. As far as studio mics go, you get vocal mics, instrument mics, overhead mics, drum mics. You name it, they exist!
Unfortunately, there is no “one mic suits all” option available. A good quality vocal mic, for example, would not be able to handle to punishment that a bass drum mic would be able to handle.
Different mics use different capsule designs and pick up sound in different ways. That is why it always pays to use the right mic for the job.
If you want to record vocals, get a vocal mic. For acoustic guitars or other acoustic instruments (that don’t have a pickup built in) get a good quality condenser mic. For drums, buy a drum kit mic set. Remember, to get the best sound from the drums, each drum and cymbal would ideally have its own mic.
