So here we have our well tested and reviewed list of what we feel could be the right microphone for singing for you. Every year all of the respected manufacturers put out press releases of ‘new exciting breakthroughs’ but most of the time they are hollow marketing gimmicks. If we begin at step one with a failure to do proper research, making the purchase of a new microphone can lead to utter disappointment, in spite of all the claims manufacturers and their ‘magic microphones’.
Each of us has a unique voice. We all have different tones, textures, and timbres when we sing. It makes the decision even more difficult when you have to decide which microphone would be the perfect fit for YOU. In spite of all of the variables, there are some microphones that will put you in that singing “sweet-spot” better than others. They are a step above all the rest. These are microphones that can capture that part of your vocal personality for specific or multi-purpose situations. They have consistently and repeatedly proven to be the ideal choice, not just for the Go Nuts Music Team but for thousands of singers who rely on them for their vocal technique and performance.
