And how do you like it/how does it sound?
AKG D112. Obviously, I like the sound or I wouldn't use it.
Either AKG D12 or Sennheiser MD421.
Sennheiser MD421 as well...but I'd like a try out a D112 one of these days. Maybe the next time we do some recording I'll pick one up.
57+DI occasionally a RE-20
I like the meat to come from the DI and the "character" to come from the 57 so I don't care about low end from the mic.
I used a GLS Audio ES-57 (Shure SM-57 copy) and a DI from my amp. The two together sounded amazing. My old band recorded a couple tracks using those things and they worked really well. Plus, they're really cheap.
Shure sm 57 or an xlr out.
MD421 / RE20
For you guys running both mic and DI, do you run into 2 channels on the board and then mix to preference?
I run both Mic and DI. Separate board channels. Mix channel levels to preference depending on room.
Currently I'm actually using a Samson Q-kick mic on my cabinets. Pleasantly surprised by how it's doing and sounding.
cad e-100. it's a full range mic so it doesn't loose any mids like a kick mic does. also nice on guitar cabs and kick drum.
If You're able to get a D12 instead, try that also, makes a world of difference.
not a kick mic fan. i use a heil pr 40 because it sounds a lot like an re 20 but with more bottom. and i love a di + 58 rig as well if you want to mic a cab on the cheap.
shure ksm 27
shure sm57/ 58/ beta 57a/ beta 58
sennheiser 602/ 609
these are the ones i've used in the last 6 months,
i'm sure i'll use more in the next 6.
sometimes with di, sometimes without.
sometimes 2 mics.
it all really depends on the need, they can all sound great or bad depending on the circumstance/ placement....
that said, the
m88 is almost always good, and i love a regular 57 mixed with a di
for a cutting tone.
That chart does not show the bass boost you get from the proximity effect of close-micing a bass cab with an SM57.
I have heard and used a 57 by itself on bass cabs, and they sounded very good.
Yeah, I was looking for that proximity graph, I thought Shure used to have it on their site. IIR close proximity doesn’t get better extension; it just boosts response in the roll-out region (~100-200 Hz). When running sound, I’ve never been impressed with using a 57 on bass. Sounds just like it measures – all midbass, no low end.
