Dynamic Mics that everyone should have?

Post by tylerbcrawford » Fri Oct 22, 2004 3:07 pm

Besides the SM 57 what do you think are dynamic mics that everyone should have?

MD421, ATM25. Both very versatile mics.

yet another ATM25 fan here. Also put me down for Beyer M88, which is ever so much nicer than a 57. The Beyer M388 is also highly recommended, if only because a figure 8 dynamic is kinda rare (at least outside of the ribbon realm) and very useful...
I thought this club was for musicians. Who let the drummer in here??

M201
ATM25
MD421
EV 635

And, one out of left field here, the Beyer M400 (AKA Soundstar MK II). A surprisingly smooth and rich sounding 58-alike dynamic.
