LEWITT MTP250DM DYNAMIC MICROPHONE
I have had a fair few Lewitt microphones land on my desk over the last couple of years and I have to say, the ones that are coming through now seem to be a great improvement in quality. Straight out of the box and as always, I unscrew everything I can on this microphone because it’s just what I have always done. I like to see how a microphone is put together and with the Lewitt MTP250DM I am pleasantly surprised with the look and the feel both inside and out.
Sennheiser E906 Guitar Microphone
It often amazes me that so many guitarists can spend so much time and money trying to get their tone just right, whilst all the while forgetting one crucial element. The guitar, the pickups, the pedals, the amp, the speakers are all taken into consideration, often at great length and much expense. Then, they will walk out onto a stage and let just any old microphone go in front of the amp to deliver that perfect tone to the audience. I have to stop and question this logic, as I would think that if the tone was so important, maybe each and every guitarist should consider what microphone they allow to capture their sound. This is why every guitar case should have a Sennheiser e906 in it, to ensure that no matter what venue you play in, you can always complete your tone all the way to the PA system.
SHURE PGA58 VOCAL MICROPHONE
When you think of a vocal microphone for live applications, one microphone in particular comes to mind. However, for those looking to get a similar microphone on a budget, then Shure is ready with a solution to meet your needs. The PGA58 draws on the design of the legendary SM58, but houses it all within a budget friendly package for anyone to use.
SENNHEISER EVOLUTION WIRELESS D1 835 SYSTEM
Well, it was only a matter of time before Sennheiser announced a new range in digital wireless transmitters and receivers. At the NAMM show earlier this year it got a lot of people interested. Now, I am pleased to say, that the wait is over and the new Evolution D1 is here, in my hands, ready to deliver without wires and without any degradation of the signal. Looking at the development of the Evolution Wireless range over the last fifteen years or so, this is the boldest new design.
SHURE QLXD24/BETA58 WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEM
With the digital dividend about to kick in for radio transmission here in Australia, it is good to see a range of new wireless microphone systems hitting our shores that work within the new confines of the digital transmission laws. One such system, the Shure QLXD24, is one that I’ve wanted to test out for a while now, given that I have used just about every other Shure wireless system of late and I was keen to give this one a run-in. The good news is that this month I’ve had the opportunity to do just that, and I was rather impressed with the results.
