Snare mic
« on: November 10, 2014, 11:37:58 am »

I was using an SM57, but I had to replace too many windscreens and clips, so I went to an Audix I5. I like the sound of both mics, but with the kind of "all over the place" hitters I deal with, I need some recommendations for a smaller profile mic that I can "hide" from errant stickage. SM98? etc. Suggestions?

I've been using e604 on snare for years. I like it better than a 57. Clips on quick too.

+1 for the e604. Sounds good and can take a lickin'

I personally use Beta98amp mics on the snare and toms. They clip on and hide away pretty well.

Not sure how well a 98 would hold up to very many stick wacks

That would be my least favorite drum mic for just that reason, as well as the fragile cable connection. I would also avoid a clip on mic on a snare because it is a big PITA when the drummer decides to swap out the snare mid set.

Many?  How about *1*.

The 98 amp is designed for drums. No fragile cable.. The XLR plugs right in and only a short (well built) gooseneck hangs over the top a bit. Probably the least intrusive mic available. This video is not great but it shows you basically how it works http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xt79ItHGB0o

And the clamp has a quick release.

Whack it with a 2B with the PA at Full Tilt Boogie and let me know what you think of the nasty 48v pop as the mic dies.
