I need classic looking mic advice
« on: December 03, 2011, 07:34:46 pm »

the guitarist in a band I work with alot has helped me out many times in the last couple months and I want to get him a thank you gift since he wont let me pay him. I have heard him mention several times that he want a classic looking mic and since I have no experience with these Im asking for advice here on what to get. He uses a 58 right now so anything comparable would be fine.  He sings and plays harmonica. The band reminds me of Gram Parsons. thanks.....

Do it as well as you possible can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something."  - Kurt Vonnegut
