Good Vocal Mic...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I've been looking for a good vocal mic for doing some recording.
What do you think of this
I understand its cheap, but my max I can spend is $30ish shipped.
I'll be doing vocal recordings for my band.

Also, does anyone know what size jack it is?
I'm guessing 3.5mm, and comes with a 6.5mm converter?

If you're looking to get pretty serious, you'd be best off saving up a bit more, and grab a decent mic. The one that you've linked to really wont be any good if you're looking for professional results. For only $70 you could grab a MXL 990 (Which are worth closer to $200) from Musicians Friend. It's a great mic, and at that price you aren't going to find better. (At that price, you should pick up 2 )

Hope this helps,

Craigz0rz.

Shure SM-57 or SM-58.

They are world famous and popular with all the pro's.

I have a 57 (On the right):



The 57 is aimed more at instruments whereas the 58 is more of a vocalists mic.

Pretty much what he said. And since your in Oz. they go from 129 up to 185. Depends who you go to, this should help you, https://www.billyhydemusic.com.au/sh...on=view&id=859

The shures are good. They are very hard to kill. It should last you quite a few years.

We use the 57s and 58s at work. They have been dropped, thrown and they all still work.

I'm more into power metal and melodic death metal. To be honest, if a keyboard is involved, I'm in. And Satriani is my hero, I want to marry him when I'm a big boy.
