Hey all -
Curious on faves for live shows, external mic for guitar. Presume quiet, with feedback potential low (or higher, with some of these mics putatively "good" for feedback resistance by their polar pattern, etc.)
I have an MXL603S, described as a studio instrument though I'm not entirely sure why it's not also touted for live performance. Durability?
I also have an SM58 for talkback, and/or vocals. Willing to consider other mics for vocals.
Anyway, here are some under consideration for the guitar:
AKG C 1000 S. Chris Ruppenthal of Caravan Gypsy Swing Ensemble uses these mic'ed into his Trace Elliott Channel 2, XLR, with output to board being pre-eq. I can vouch for these - aside from Chris's and his mate's stellar playing, they just sounded great when I saw them live a while back.
Others under consideration:
Royer R-121 (Nickel) (not bloody likely...still curious on people's thoughts.
Shure Beta 57A
Electro Voice N/D967
Neumann KM 184 Pair (Cardioid - Black (Pair))
Heil Sound PR 35
pas encore, j'erre toujours.
