About Microphones

In the majority of cases, microphones come in two formats, Dynamic and Condenser. Dynamic microphones are generally less sensitive and offer a more direct sound, this makes them ideal for use on stage, as they're less prone to feedback, as well as for use on drums and guitar cabinets, as they can take harsher sound pressure levels without distorting. Condenser microphones, on the other hand, are much more sensitive, while they can be prone to feedback in a live setting and can distort if overloaded, they offer a truer sound compared to a Dynamic microphone and can capture the natural sound of a room.

There are some variations on microphones, including Ribbon mics and Boundary microphones, but the application is going to be the same, choose the right microphone for the job and you'll get the best possible sound.

Some other types of microphones include headset microphones, wireless microphones, harmonica microphones, recording microphones and music microphones, with both Dynamic and Condenser versions, perfect for recording vocals, live performances and allowing a performer or presenter to move around on stage without being restricted by a cable, and USB microphones, which allow you to record direct to your computer, without the need for an audio interface.

We also stock a great selection of microphones for guitars for use with cameras and smart devices, as well as vocal effects pedals and essential accessories like pop filters, mic stands and boom poles.

Discover our full range of professional microphones available at guitarguitar.

 

What Microphone Should I Choose?

  • Dynamic Microphones are great for loud sound sources, and are generally more rugged
  • Condenser Microphones are more sensitive and better suited to more detail orientated sounds
  • Large Diaphragm Microphones can handle larger sound pressures, these are better at handling lower frequencies
  • Small Diaphragm Microphones are better with more moderate or smaller sound pressure. These provide more detailed high frequency response

Frequently Asked Questions about Microphones

Question: What do I need to know about microphones?
In most cases, to use a microphone you will require either a mixing desk, amplifier or an audio interface that will provide the microphone with the correct power.
Question: What makes a good microphone?
While quality components and design definitely play their parts, it's the sound of the microphone that really makes it good. Microphones like the Shure SM58 and SM57 or the Neumann U87 are all different from each other, but are seen as benchmarks and essential parts of a professional studio.
Question: How do I choose the right microphone?
This depends on what you intend to use a microphone for, if you're singing on stage or recording in a boxy room, then a Dynamic microphone may be a good option. However, if you're recording piano in a room with great acoustics, a Condenser would be ideal. If you're unsure of what you need, ask us in store or online and we'll be happy to help.
Question: What are the different types of microphones?
Dynamic and Condenser microphones are your main two types of microphones. Both are available in wireless formats and Condenser microphones come in many other variations, including stereo mics, camera mics and shotgun mics. There are also Ribbon microphones, which sit tonally somewhere between Dynamic and Condenser microphones.
