Awesome choice for a first mic- especially for recording

By Justin Rhody

from Rochester NY

Comments about Digital Reference DR-LVX2 Dynamic Lead Vocal Microphone:

I picked this mic up from guitar center about 8 years ago when I was first starting out in recording. I knew far less than I know now, but getting this mic made put me at ease so I could focus on recording and not have to worry about dealing with cruddy mic issues. It is brighter and more detailed than an SM-58, but it can't handle as much loudness and has less mid-low range, which is good or bad depending on the vocalist/ source. For recording (especially vocals), I would recommend THIS over ANY low-end condenser mic. Many seem to think that condensers are BETTER than dynamic mics, but it all depends on application and quality. If you don't have $500+ for a nice condenser mic, this mic is a great choice. When used right, it even works well on acoustic instruments. Not the best mic to use for live stuff, as I have found it doesn't have great feedback protection, but for recording, it is suburb. Not to say that some compression and eq wont bring it out to its full sonic detail, but it handles eq really well. When/if you get to a point where you can afford a nicer high end condenser for lead vox, keep this guy around because I have found that when it comes to layering/panning backing vocals, I often prefer the DVR-LVX2 over my KSM44 because it occupies less of the frequency spectrum and stands out without getting buried. Not going to blab too much (guess I already have...), and I can only speak from my experience with how it worked for my own voice, but for the price, you really can't go wrong.

Really Good Mic

By Kevin

from Providence, RI

Comments about Digital Reference DR-LVX2 Dynamic Lead Vocal Microphone:

This DR-LVX2 is a really good vocal mic. rates right up there with any EV or SHure that I have used.. as for an on/off switch, those are not needed on good mics. If you require and on/off swith you can by a 25 ft. cable from Live Wire that has the switch on the cable..

Good microphone for the money.

By PlatypusMan

from Methuen, MA

Comments about Digital Reference DR-LVX2 Dynamic Lead Vocal Microphone:

This mic is 100 times better than the SM58, which has remained unchanged for the last 30 years. It has a stronger signal, clearer sound, and fends off feedback better than anything Shure is putting out at this or even twice the price. In addition, microphones with an on/off switch are toys and Radio Shack quality. Professional musicians know that pro microphones do not have an on/off switch. I have never seen a pro level mic with a switch. The only exception being wireless systems. So, stay away from mics that have an on/off switch. They are for Fisher Prize radio recorders.

A few minor problems

By ChrisN

from Concord CA

Comments about Digital Reference DR-LVX2 Dynamic Lead Vocal Microphone:

My friend bought this mike about a year ago, and it still works, however, it is, and always did, kid of give us a slightly crunchy/staticy tone. Don't get me wrong, its hardly noticable, but if you are a perfectionist, which I know most musicians are, you might want to look into another mic. Also, one other problem it has is that it has no on/off switch, so unless you have sombody running your soundboard, it can cause a lot of unwanted noise.
