Hanging mic recommendations
« on: September 19, 2022, 08:52:23 PM »

Good evening.

We intend to install two hanging mics over the seating area of our sanctuary to gather crowd singing/responses during webcasts.  Our first intention was to use a pair of Shure MX202 as we have experience with those for our choir.  However, flipping the screens of the modern Yellow Pages (St. Google) I've discovered Shure CVO and Audio-Technica Pro 45 as potential alternates.

The mics will be hung so they point directly away from the flown speaker array at the front of the sanctuary.  As well, they will never be routed to the FOH mix, they will only feed into the webcast mix.

Can anyone provide pros or cons for any of these alternatives?

Thx in advance for your responses.

Also be careful not to pick up HVAC noise. A notch filter may be required to cut some paper-rustling frequencies.

Haven't used any of the mics you mentioned (have used Earthworks for Choirs and low cost LDCs for Audience) but, if you're happy with the MX202, why not be consistent?
