Impressive mic


from Lancaster, PA

Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 61 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

I purchased this as a gift and did a comparison with my Shure 58. Tonal quality is similar but just shy of the deeper tones of the Shure 58. There were two primary reasons why I chose this mic. One, the price. After comparing dozens of mics and reading many reviews, the Pro 61 seemed like a solid mic to practice vocals. Second, the Hypercardioid nature of the coil would eliminate much of the sound bouncing off walls that I expected could be a problem in the environment where the singing would take place. The mic will be in a teenagers hands and will likely be dropped on occasion but the solid construction of this mic will ensure that it will perform for years to come. One supprise bonus was that the mic came with a chord so right there you save another $10. If you are in the market for a great entry level mic, this would serve you well. The mic does not come with an on-off switch which could be a consideration for some users.

Best Uses

    Comments about Audio-Technica PRO 61 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

    I was searching for a good mic to mic some guitar cabinets and after a few instrument mics with unsatisfactory results I began to look at some vocal mics. This mic caught my attention because of the Hypercardoid pattern and the relatively low cost so after debating between a few different mics I bought the Audio-Technica Pro 61. This thing performed way beyond my expectations and blew away the much more expensive instrument mic I had been using. The sweet spot was easy to locate and needed very little EQ if any. It makes the guitar sit well in the mix as it responds to every nuance. The bump in the frequency curve around 4k is perfect for leveling out the tone of my 4x12 cabinet. Excellent Microphone!
