Podcast mic for singing?

Hi,

I got a Shure MV7 “podcaster” mic as a gift from a Podcaster/non-musical relative.

I was wondering if it might be a good one for singing, so I thought I’d try to learn a bit more about it by reviewing its frequency specs, polarity (is that the right word? I mean omni vs cardioid, etc.), but I couldn’t find specs on the Shure website.

Does anyone know whether this might be a good singing mic?

Thanks for any thoughts!

I’ve never heard a microphone sing.

I suppose you can’t do any harm to yourself, others, or the microphone by just trying it. It’s okay. Go ahead!

:grin:

Haha, you funny guy.

Might return it unopened to get something else in my list, that’s why I’m not trying it.

Yeah, you know I just like poking at you a little bit! :wink:

I don’t know anything about that mic. But, unless you need the extra connectivity, I would probably recommend getting a different “standard” mic in that price range. It might be fine, though.

What else are you looking at? A different mic, or a different item altogether?

Different altogether, wireless lav and iem set up.

If it doesn’t hurt the gift giver’s feelings and you really don’t need that style of mic, I would suggest investigating the option of returning it for a different item.

:+1: thanks
