Anyone have any experience with these new condensor mics for live performances? I am a bit worried that smaller spaces or bad sound reflection would cause feedback but the idea of a warm condensor on the vocals is intriging. At $250 or so a pop I dont want to have to buy a few to try out (they are non returnable like harmonicas)

I guess a tube preamp inline might give the same warmth.

I do some gigs with this female singer and she uses a Shure that sounds quite good. I think it's a model PG27.

It doesn't feedback (yet) and has very good clarity!

she uses this in a live situation? the link makes it look like a studio mic (Large diaphram)

it is a small ensemble or a louder band situation?

thanks

Yes, I've been using a Neumann KMS105 for several years live. It's a tremendous sounding, rugged mic that makes most mics sound cheap in comparison. It also rejects almost all feedback.

Large diaphram mics can be used on stage. Look at the link below on the MXL...

wow.... and its priced about the same as a dynamic. MXL is a decent brand and the lack of an external transformer is a big plus

I think I am gonna make the jump from my Peavy PVM 22 to a condensor.

thanks all!

so I have been looking at the Beta 87 A & C cause I just like the solid way Shure makes mics

from what I read the B87A is better for wedge monitors since its super cardioid and the B87C is better for IEMs cause its cardiod and it seems to sound better in the IEM

anyone ever play with these 2?
I really dont want to get one that wont work as well since you cant return mics

thanks!
