JZ Microphones on Vocals
Why is it so difficult to choose "The Best Vocal Mic"?
The pro audio pundits of the internet would have you believe that the fate of your future recordings hangs in the balance of one critical decision: finding “the perfect vocal mic”. Don’t believe the hype. At the very least, don’t get paralyzed fearing you’ll make the “wrong choice” and will be stuck forever with a mic that makes you sound poopy.
The fact is these days there are so many incredible microphones on the market in a variety of price ranges.
If you’re considering a microphone purchase – especially if it’s your first – HERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER:
If I only had ONE microphone...
If I only had ONE microphone and knew I’d be using it on a wide variety of sound sources I’d choose a large-diaphragm condenser, preferably with multiple polar patterns and a -10dB pad (otherwise fixed cardioid would do just fine).
All three of these excellent JZ mics fit that description and I would be thrilled with any one of them as my “one and only” all-purpose mic.
Do you have a favorite go-to vocal mic?
