On a Budget? Mic Up Everyone with the Audio-Technica ST90MKII
Audio-Technica's been building microphones for decades, and they're known for no-nonsense workhorse microphones that are built to last -- like the ST90 MKII. This rugged dynamic vocal microphone has a cardioid polar pattern, so it rejects off-axis sound from the sides and rear -- and it's got an on/off switch so it's simple to use when you don't have someone manning the mixing board. Best of all, these little gems are so inexpensive, you can afford to mic up the entire band.
Dynamic Means Versatile
Designed as a go-anywhere, do-anything microphone, the ST90 MKII is a passive design, also known as "dynamic." Dynamic microphones do not require phantom power, which means meaning you'll be able to plug these guys into any piece of audio equipment with a microphone input. Dynamic microphones also have a high degree of feedback rejection, and can tolerate exceptionally loud sound sources, which makes them great in live situations.
Tailored for Vocals
Everyone needs a good, reliable vocal microphone. With its classic cardioid dynamic handheld design, the A-T ST90 MKII looks the part -- and sounds it, with a frequency response tailored for voice at 100 Hz - 12 kHz. Because it doesn't pick up on rumble below 100 Hz, mic naturally filters out handling noise. And just like your go-to dynamic mics, in a pinch, the Audio-Technical ST90 MKII works well in front of guitar amps or on top of snare drums.
Inexpensive -- Not Cheap
It's easy to find a cheap mic. What is hard is finding an inexpensive dynamic microphone that's still good enough to use in professional situations. Well, guess what? If you're reading this, then you've just found that mic! The Audio-Technica ST90MKII dynamic microphone may just be the most affordable microphone you'll ever be proud to own -- and you can buy them in bulk at unbeatable prices, with plenty of cords, clips, and even stands.
