Microphones, also known as mic's, are a device that captures sounds and converts it into an electrical signal.
There are a few different types of microphones, so let's talk about that, and the differences between them.
Firstly, you have Dynamic Microphones, these are your go-to for live sound. Ever seen a photo of your favourite singer rolling around on the stage yelling into a microphone with a ball head mesh grill? that's a dynamic microphone. These are great, sturdy, strong microphones that can be used for almost all live music and studio applications.
Next, you have small diaphragm condenser microphones. these are thinner, cylindrical microphones. these are good for capturing higher-end sounds, like cymbals, acoustic guitars, basically anything you're looking to get quality high end out of.
Thirdly, you have Large-diaphragm condensers. these are THE go-to studio vocal microphone. whilst they aren't as durable as dynamic microphones, these are one of the best options for great vocals and
lastly, you have Ribbon Microphones. Ribbon microphones have a slightly high-end roll-off and are really useful for capturing really high detail sounds. they are a version of a dynamic microphone and are really great for recording electric guitar.
