Choosing the best microphone is very subjective. It depends on many variables such as the style of music, the characteristics of the voice, or the specific sound the engineer and band is going for. The best way to select a microphone is to audition the microphone. If you can not audition a microphone, we have a new feature on our website to sort the microphones by application. This is just a general recommendation for which microphone to use on vocals, instruments, ensemble, broadcast, and percussion. We also have audio samples on our website in the video gallery.
