New amp, highly recommended Especially for the $400 price tag!



Using the neck pickup (it was in neck/mid position in the beginning, quickly switched)

Can anyone recommend me a good mic kit (mic, cables, boom ect.) for micing up my amp and another for acoustic/vocals. I have a £200 budget as a guideline, but can be stretched for quality

I've found this kit, but I'm not sure if they would be any good for amp micing, and doesn't come with booms.

I'd just go for a Shure SM57 really, good all rounder. Should be able to get a couple for under £200.

Oh and a SM58 is essentially the same with a different mesh, both the SM57/58 are very good, be careful of fakes though.

edit: Also, Sennheiser ME40

Lazza - What are you actually trying to do? How many mics are you wanting to record at the same time? The mics at your link would each require a pre-amp with phantom power - do you have a mixer or something for that?

For vocals, I like large diaphragm condenser mics. These do work well on acoustic too, and can be good for micing cabs, although you wouldn't want to max your amp out with an LDC in front of it as they can be delicate.

If you need the mics to work for live use, you need dynamic mics, not condensers really.

You'll need a pop shield for vocals.

get a second hand sm57 or sm58 for your cab, (60 or so quid?),
then consider a cheapish condenser for vocals like a rode nt1, akg c2000b.

If you are wanting to record seriously its worth the extra investment - but both of these mics second hand you may be lucky to find for about £200 quid which is only a bit more than those ISK mics. use the condenser about 5-7 inches from the soundhole and the sm57/8 pointing at the frets lower down the neck and blend them to get a good sound.

if its live your talking about I would consider buying a pickup for your acoustic and then doubling up the SM57/8 on your vocals (with the grill on the 58 you get a better, sharper presence peak for vocals but I doubt you would notice that much live anyway if you use the mixer to reshape your sound anyway). If your not interested in getting a pickup then consider some small diaphragm condensers like the AKG3000, but again a sm57 should work just as well on acoustic (if you get any feedback issues just roll off some of the low end on the mixer, and good placement should leave you with a nice sound to work with)

edit: you could pick up a good quality boom and cables for about £20 quid if you look in the right places, try the usual sites (dv247, gak, dolphinmusic) but also try ebay?

This is very true. I'd honestly just spend the money to get a new one from a reputable vendor.

On another note I almost applied for an engineering job at shure yesterday. They're located just north of chicago.

ah, never bought one off ebay but I guess they would be easy for people to copy - theres no real distinctive features of the microphone apart from the logo that seperates it from loads of other brands of cheaper microphone without really knowing the ins and outs i guess - GAK has an offer on at the moment where you can buy a SM57 and get a free boom and cable for £105 so thats your best bet (the same offer is on for sm58's)

i had this same debate about 2-3 months ago

SM57 is a must, as its a great al round amp thats used in the highest quality studios and its relatively affordable, its £105 including mic, stand and cables ( http://www.gak.co.uk/en/shure-sm-57/6389 )

I got the Rode NT1A vocal pack, which included a pop shield, stand and cables, this is at £150, but i think its wroth the £50 stretch ( http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/produc..._campaign=base )

i can send you some samples of both in action if you so wish

edit:
dont buy off ebay, i bought a fake sm57 off ebay and it looked super legit, it had a photo that wasnt just taken off google images, it was on some nice flooring with lots of pictures, its only when you take it apart you realise its fake...not worth it in the slightest

You'll need a pop shield for vocals.
I'll be recording in a studio setting, and need something better than a line out and a karaoke mic I want something that'll last me through college, so don't wanna start by buying a cheap piece of crap then having to buy a better one withing a few weeks. I do have a phantom power supply for two mics at the same time (Line 6 Toneport UX2) but most of the time I'll only be using one. I would like a separate mics for amp and vocals though, in case I ever use it in a band. I don't mind buying everything separately, but packages would be easier, and most likely cheaper.

Also, for amp recording I've never maxed the volume, 5/13 is enough for my school hall (nearly 1000 people) and at home it rarely goes past 2, how loud does it have to be, or is it just preference?

Edit: I think I'll go for the SM57 then, seems to be the popular choice. As for a vocal mic, I won't be using both mics at the same time for several months, so it would probably be best just to go for the mic+pop shield for the time being.
