Open Mic: Tell Us About the Microphone You Use the Most

Microphones come in all shapes and sizes, a variety of designs, and come as cheap or expensive as you like? What is your favorite mic?

Each Tuesday we open our mic to readers and lurkers alike to come out of the woodwork and tell us your thoughts and opinion, your experiences and mistakes, what you love and what you hate. We want to hear from you, and here’s your chance.

What is your favorite microphone? What do you like about it? How did you discover it? Are you still in search of the perfect mic?

Do you use just one general purpose mic, or a variety of mics for different purposes? How many do you use at one time?

Or are you the sort of music producer that never needs or uses a mic? Do you see that changing in the future?
