6 X Shure SM58
The legendary SM58® is an industry-standard, highly versatile cardioidPicks up most sound in front of the microphone and some from the sides. It is less susceptible to feedback in high volume environments.Read moreGo to the glossary dynamicDynamic mics have a simple, rugged construction and can handle very high sound pressure levels.Read moreGo to the glossary vocal microphone, tailored to deliver warm and clear vocal reproduction. The SM58 is consistently the first choice for vocal performances around the globe.>

4 X Shure SM Beta 57A
The Shure Beta 57A® is a high output supercardioid dynamic microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. It maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range. This insures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off–axis tone coloration.

Excellent for acoustic and electric instruments as well as for vocals, the extremely versatile Beta 57A dynamic microphone provides optimal warmth and presence. Typical applications include drums, guitar amplifiers, brass, woodwinds and vocals

2 X Audio Technica AT2020
Audio-Technica’s stringent quality and consistency standards set the AT2020 apart from other mics in its class. Its low-mass diaphragm is custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With rugged construction for durable performance, the microphone offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. The AT2020: the new standard for affordable side-address studio condensers.

6 X AKG SE 300
AKG BLUE LINE MODULAR MIC SYSTEM This new modular range of electret microphones has a capsule to cover all applications. Like all AKG products, precision and reliability are second to none. The Blue Line system brings the flexIbility of the modular system within the budget of practically everyone. SE300B SE300B The AKG Blue Line modular system comprises the SE300B Universal Powering Module that connects via a bayonet coupling to eight different microphone capsules, plus a variety of accessories for every conceivable miking situation. Extremely light diaphragms make the microphones highly insensitive to handling noise. Other features include low susceptibility to RF interference, the ability to operate on phantom voltages from 9 to 52 volts, transformerless output, switchable -10dB pre attenuation and switchable bass cut filter which rolls off all frequencies below 75Hz at 12dB/octave. CK91 Cardioid Capsule, This Polar pattern represents the classic studio equipment requirement where sounds originating behind the capsule are suppressed

2 X sennheiser e 614
The e 614 is a super-cardioid condenser microphone, designed for demanding instrument recordings and performances that require extended frequency response, high SPL handling, fast transient response and compact size.

1 X Rode NT1-a
Rode's NT1A looks physically similar to the original NT1 — other than the finish, which is now satin nickel rather than grey lacquer. It is supplied in a cardboard box rather than a fancy case, and looks less macho than some of its competitors, but it comes with a good metal shockmount and a soft zip-up storage pouch. Like the original NT1, the NT1A is a cardioid-pattern, large-diaphragm capacitor mic with a gold-sputtered one-inch diaphragm.


2 X Shure Beta 91-a
The Shure Beta 91A is designed for use with kick drums, as well as other traditional low-frequency applications including piano. Featuring an updated microphone capsule, integrated preamplifier, and XLR connection, Beta 91A offers a strong low-frequency response and is specifically tailored for bass frequency applications. The Beta 91A combines superior attack and punch for studio-quality sound, even at extremely high sound pressure levels (SPL

1 X Shure 55sh
An unmistakable stage icon for 70 years, the 55SH Series II vocal microphone features asignature satin chrome-plated die-cast casing for pure vintage look and feel.

1 X AKG D112
With its distinctive egg shape, the AKG D112 has become one of the most popular kick drum microphones ever made. A descendent of the earlier D12 dynamic microphone, AKG set about engineering a tougher and more modern sounding kick drum mic with a specially engineered diaphragm to create a solid and powerful response below 100 Hz and a narrow band presence rise at 4 kHz to help the kick punch through dense mixes with little or no added EQ. It's a large diaphragm cardioid dynamic with a built in pop shield and can handle up to 160 dB SPL with no audible distortion making it good for other instruments such and the bass and brass instruments like the trombone.

1 X Shure Beta 52A
The Shure Beta 52A is a high output dynamic microphone with a tailored frequency response designed specifically for kick drums and other bass instruments. It provides superb attack and "punch," and delivers studio quality sound even at extremely high sound pressure levels.


1 X Shure SM81 - LC
The Shure SM81 is a high-quality, unidirectional condenser microphone designed for studio recording, broadcasting, and sound reinforcement. Its wide frequency response, low noise characteristics, and low RF susceptibility have made it a standard for applications involving acoustic instruments, especially guitar, piano, and cymbals

1 X Sennheiser MD441
The MD 441 U is a microphone of exceptional quality: its acoustic properties come as close as possible to those of a condenser microphone. Accurate signal response and low distortion are ensured, even with the highest sound pressure levels.all metal body with black leatherette finish, sound inlet basket: nickel plated. Very good for solo brass instuments.

2 X Sennheiser e906
The cardioid e 906 instrument microphone was especially designed for guitar amps and is also excellent for percussion and horns.

5 X Sennheiser e604
