My father has recently started playing out again. His gig is very low production - powered mixer into some tops with backline covering instruments. It's a fairly low volume gig. However, I know he hasn't upgraded his mic in a while, so I thought I'd grab him one for Christmas, which I'll be giving him later today. I picked up a Sennheiser E935. The very helpful GC employee told me to A/B it with the tried-and-true Beta 58. When we went back to the pro audio room and tried them out, I thought the Sennheiser was the clear winner. While the Beta sounded good, the E935 had a little something extra. It was a bit more hyped in the top that gave the mic presence without sounding nasally or tinny. It also had a bit more punch. Dad's a baritone with a lot of energy around 250hz, so I'm thinking the E935 is going to work well with his voice.
