There’s a couple of little sayings that if you spend any time with me (or you read my blog a lot) you’re going to start picking up. ‘You’re only as good as your weakest link’ and ‘poop in, poop out’. These two little phrases can often apply to the microphones we choose to use.
Microphones are the very starting point in the long chain from musician to the congregation’s ear. As such, it’s very important that the microphone you use is the right one for the job and is of as good a quality as possible. There are dozen of microphone manufacturers making 100’s if not 1000’s of different microphones. I’ve seen microphones for £20 and microphones for £5k plus. How do you navigate what seems to be a huge market and get the right microphone for you?
