    Microphone FAQ


    I recently stumbled upon this helpful FAQ, and thought it would be useful to people coming here for answers:
    http://web.archive.org/web/20061209074617/http://www.josephson.com/mic-faq.html (Original Offline, Archived Copy)

    Edit: Stickied. We could use this thread to write our own FAQ as well...

    I found this to be an interesting read. Actually a thread turned microphone theory manual by audio engineer Harvey Gerst.

    Just to follow up on this March 14 post: the link I gave has been taken off-line. Find a replacement here: Harvey Gerst's mic lessons:

    Hmm... Why is this this still "sticky" when the FAQ is down (and has been for a while by the looks of things).

    This was a very useful FAQ--I've downloaded it to keep it handy. Microphones don't go out of date so fast as other electronics, so it's still current in most respects. It also includes instructions for modifying a RadioShack PZM, which I bought way back in the 80s and still have, to use balanced lines. The ASCII illustrations are not elegant (pictures would have been better), but I may yet get around to trying this mod.

    Actually I'm surprised this wasn't here so I'm adding it:

    Oade.com microphone FAQ

    I find it an invaluable reference for recommended microphones for all kinds of assorted applications.
