    Hey everyone! The people at Fifine Technology sent me a microphone to review - a $30 usb condenser mic. I knew that it was good for podcasts and other talking purposes, but wanted to see how it would handle recording saxophone. Have a look and let me know what you think!

    Hi, I´ve tried the ATM350U clip on mic and also the Audix ADX20 i-p. The sound was great but I play a Keilwerth SX90R and the noise of the keys on the mic was kind of annoying. I think this is because of the rolled tone holes. Is there a clip on mic which isolates better and has a very good...

    I'm looking for a pouch that can hold my Sennheiser transmitter to the bell of my saxophone, so that I don't need to attach the pack to my person when picking the sax up and putting it back on its stand. Any suggestions?

    Hey all! Looking to purchase a microphone for home use (saxophone recording) with a budget of around $300. I did some recording at my buddy's place with a Carvin CTM100 tube condenser and LOVED the way it came out on both alto and tenor. I'll link a couple of those recordings below so you can...

    I know there is a newer post about best mics live but looking at a wireless system that is durable and affordable. Would like to stay under $500 but trying to get a realistic idea on the best bang for the buck. Thanks!

    Hello! I have a Super Balanced Action Tenor sax and I’m looking for recommendations for a nice home recording mic. I recently bought myself a Focusrite Scarlett Studio bundle (2nd gen) and I’m happy with it but the mic that came with it doesn’t seem ideal for sax recording. However I’m only...

    So I've browsed through a bunch of the microphone threads here, but haven't found any that quite addresses this question. I'm working on improving my tone, and I find that one the most helpful things for this purpose is being able to hear myself from the outside by recording myself practicing...

    Hello All- I'm currently using a Samson Airline 77 wireless system with my tenor on GB gigs. The sound produced through the fronts is 'okay' (even with a lot of EQ work), however, the room noise picked up by the mic is almost unbearable. It is especially noticeable in my in-ear monitors. The...

    So I just purchased the Apex 435 condenser mic from Amazon and I was planning on using it to record some songs on my computer but there is no cable in the box. I don't know if it is supposed to be like that or the cable was mistakenly left out or what happened. If it is not supposed to come with...

    Having spent 4 days listening to over 13 hours of live Zorn concerts at the Adelaide Festival I'm even more a Zorn-ophile than I already was :twisted:. Interestingly, a friend pointed out that John pays intense amount of concentration to his live sax sound and has had the same mic for live gigs...

    Hi! I'm new to SOTW so I hope I posted this in the correct category. I play alto and tenor sax and want to get into home recording. I play at an intermediate level and would be recording sax, other wind instruments, and some vocals. I've done a lot of research and from what I think, these mics...

    Hi, I've been looking at the Behringer C-1U and it looks good and sounds good from the videos I've heard. I'm interested in using it for recording my tenor sax (Selmer Super Action 80 Series 2). What do you think of this microphone and could you give me any advice in recording for tenor...

    Hi all, I had my first gig with a clip on microphone on bari last week, and I noticed that the clip on they used picked up the low A a lot louder than anything else coming from my instrument. It was a condensator microphone, a pretty good one. But something didn't really fit. I never had that...
