Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.
You guys are onto creating a new microphone line
The "Beta B.U.T.T plug 57"
All I can say is buy new...not sure you would want to buy a used second hand Beta plug 57.
Good stuff, Harvey. I always learn from you.
I notice the lack of many other popular $100 LDCs (e.g., AT, AKG, Studio Projects models) and am wondering if that's by your preference or simply not having them around.
This was really more of an exercise in just grabbing four very low cost mics and trying them for both guitar and vocals. I was pleasantly surprised as to how well all the mics did on voice AND guitar. With a little attention to placement and some eq, I think any of them would be very useful for either purpose.
Thanks, man. I'm still using a couple of original SP B1s for my acoustic guits and really like the results, but I have no idea how they compare to the MXL LDCs. No biggie, but thanks for the feedback.
Thanks for posting these tracks.
The ECM-8000 sounds really good. It captured that classic Martin low end just right. But the whole guitar sounds good with that one mic.
It's a very interesting thing to play with, mixing all the different tracks together.
I have to say the track I liked the least was the TLM103 so far, and the 603 sounded pretty nice on vocals, had a little sharper command than the V67g which is the current mic I have my wife singing into!
All in all I think that the Behringer mic sounded pretty decent on guitar but on vocal it sounded like there was some sort of converter noise going on in places, or something was making a digital noise there... Anbody else hear that?
I may have to get a couple of the ECM8000's for working with our acoustics...
My various rants about digital audio and Indie music: At my blog
Just thought i would add my own two-penneth, having asked for advice recently on a usb mic for sopranos and asked my youtube friends what they use (it was just for posting lap-top-studio songs on internet). I eventually went for the Samson C01u as it was in my budget. Compare to what i was using, Have to say I'm not diassapointed! Once you have fiddled around a bit with levels and defaults on Windows7 I dont think i get a bad sound at all.(Used Mixcraft for the recording). I thought i would post a link to a couple of songs i have done with this mic for all those thinking about it.
The 603 has a peak up around 7 kHz, so that may account for the extra "sharpness" you're hearing.
