Is a condenser mic good for vocals?
Condenser microphones are best used to capture vocals and high frequencies. ... The added power to the microphone is what gives it its characteristic high-output sound. While condenser mics are great for capturing acoustic guitars, they don't work well for big booming sounds.
Should I get a dynamic or condenser microphone?
The difference between a dynamic and a condenser microphone is a dynamic microphone is better for capturing loud, strong sounds (drums or loud vocals), particularly in a live setting, whereas a condenser microphone is used to capture more delicate sounds and higher frequencies (studio vocals for example), particularly in a studio setting. A dynamic microphone also doesn’t require power whereas a condenser microphone does.
What do you need for a condenser mic?Instead of a wire coil, all condenser microphones have two capacitor plates that require power from an external source. That means you'll need to supply what's called "phantom power" by connecting the microphone to a mixer or other powered device via an XLR cable.
