What is the best condenser microphone ?

  When you're choosing the best microphones to use both live and in your home studio, you'll commonly come across two different types: dynamic and condenser. Take a look at both of these microphones to learn about their advantages and disadvantages.

  ABOUT CONDENSER MICROPHONES

  Condenser microphones are most commonly found in studios. They have a much greater frequency response and transient response, which is the ability to reproduce the "speed" of an instrument or voice.

  They also generally have a louder output but are much more sensitive to loud sounds.


  Condenser microphones are generally much more expensive than dynamic microphones, but many less expensive condensers are made. The problem is that most of these less expensive mics come from a couple of factories in China, and they all sound the same--very brittle and with little low end.

  Condenser mics require the use of a power supply, generally 48-volt "phantom power," and that's supplied easily by most mixing boards or external power supplies. Look for a switch that says "P 48" or "48V" on the channel strip or on the back of the mixer.



  Condenser microphones are generally used only in studios because of their sensitivity to loud sounds and the fact that they're quite a bit more fragile than their dynamic counterparts. That being said, you'll find them on stage at live music venues for use as drum overheads or for use in orchestral or choral sound reinforcement.

  TYPES OF CONDENSER MICROPHONES

  There are two different types of condenser mics: small and large diaphragm.
  Large-diaphragm microphones (LDMs) are most often the choice for studio vocals and any instrument recording where a deeper sound is desired. A large-diaphragm microphone warms up the sound of what it's recording, which also leads to the myth that most LDMs reproduce low frequencies better than small diaphragm mics.
