Studio Tuesday Blog 7 - My dynamic microphones.
Shure SM58 / Blue Encore 100 / Sennheiser e609
This week I’ll profile my three main dynamic microphones. Starting with the Shure SM58, there isn’t much to be said. It is the industry standard. It captures vocals well, but I rarely use it for any other purpose, overall if you’re looking for the “standard”, the SM58 is the way to go.
In contrast, I received the Blue Encore 100 as a free gift with my Bluebird Condenser mic. I had the intention of selling it because I didn’t really need another dynamic mic. However, this changed immediately after I tried it out. Using the Blue Encore 100 for vocals brings a presence that the SM58 just does not provide. I will take this mic over the “standard” any day because I think it just takes vocals to the next level.
Finally, the Sennheiser e609 is the mic I use to capture heavy distorted guitar cabs. This mic is built to capture loud signals and I have no problem turning up an amp as high as I need. Also, the mic is built so that it can be draped in front of the cab, hanging from the cord by the handle of the amp, which makes it convenient because you don’t need another mic stand.
Next week’s Studio Tuesday Blog will feature a profile of my NEW Ultrabook, the Lenovo Ideapad, the new computer I just bought!
Recently bought this movie and cannot stop watching it; the film, the directors commentary, and the special feature.
Good morning. #coffee #morning
