This might not be obscure enough but no one posted it yet: Shure ksm137. Pretty much a 141 w/o the omni switch. The selectable pad (0, -15, -25) and flat response w/ selectable high pass filter has helped it find its way in my studio to: Snare, acoustic guitar, electric amp, ambient mic. I bet it's ...

Most of the frequencies that come from the average human voice get eaten up by carpet. There will be minimal reflection.

Most singers that have recorded a number of albums have a favorite mic for their voice. Do you have a 'go to' mic for your vocals, and if so how did you arrive at that choice?

Jeff Tweedy seems like a big fan of the SM7. Was this mic responsible for the nice vocal sound on the record? What type of preamp and what compression approach was used to get such dry vocals sounds to sit so nicely in the mix? To record live without separation did the guitar players have to use sma...
