surprised that microphone remake didn't come with some chanting instructions, LOL. I'll say that's taking it to the next level. I'm not into acoustic or singing, so I haven't gotten into the thread. I'm just a blues guitar recorder at moment. May do some drums later, possibly a little keyboard. I really like my Blue Encore 200 for electric guitar amp recording. I just scored a 2 for one deal GC had and a sale price to boot, so I now have 3 of them for various uses. I also have a Seinheiser, forget the model, but it's a lot flatter sounding to my ear.

Nothing will make me into a decent singer. Every band I've been in, I'm always the lead guitarist (I can play) but the singing, even for backing, has always been token. I wish I could sing like Ray Charles.

I have a new Shure Unidyne and I look with interest. I don't yet know this mic well. If I want to try messing around with it, I'd be likely to buy another but, even so, what one unsolders and detaches, one can replace. My general feeling is always that the less there is "between", the better the result. A man I know took apart an old-fashioned telephone mouthpiece to make an internal microphone for his melodeon, with very decent results.

Thank you for a really interesting post on an under represented area. Nothing will give me a voice, though.

AKG C414-EB (vintage transformer version)

I use these in the past with personal experience I can say that these are really good.

Who makes the "Gooch" mic in this video (23:50)?


Above video is a walking interview with Sylvia Massy.

Freddy: have you ever employed Sylvia's trick of using an SM57 inside a garden hose? My drum set is in several pieces right now, so I can't doing any testing.

Oh yeah....the old 57 in the garden hose to capture the thump with the shrillness of cymbals you mean?

Ah...no.

No idea what the gooch mic is....but I was glad to see she repurposed her "dick" mic!
