  • Live vocal stage mics. What are you using?

    I have a couple of older Beyer Dynamics TGX 80's, and some old Shure 58's, but I like the Shure Beta 58's too.

    I should order a Shure SM 58 Beta, down the road and may do so.

          I usually use a Primo mic I picked up in Japan in 90 or 91, I think. I also have an EV. It's a high output, low feedback design, but I don't think it sounds as good. In another band, we all use SM-58s. Back when I made my living at it, I used an SM-57.

                      I can happily read articles where Dan Erlewine and Grover Jackson discuss headstock angles but I has no idearrr waht mic I use....mainly, because it's locked up in my neighbor's basement/practice room. I played for a while with a country singer that would obsess about the Shure 58 vs. some slightly different model that had some different dynamic range...and I was like ....o.k....???? I guess that's the difference between a guitar player that sings on the side vs. somebody that's a real singer.

                        I hear you. I can sing decently but I mostly think of myself as a guitarist. I'd sing into a drum mike in a pinch and probably wouldn't know the difference. I don't obsess over guitar minutiae either beyond is it in tune/in decent condition/does it intonate properly/sound okay?
