    Re: Recording Organ (Microphone)

    Al, what on earth are you talking about? None of your post makes sense. . . outside of the Neumanns being good mics part (duh).

      Mikes requiring phantom power do so at low electrical current maybe 10 milliamps. Shorting this by usrng a dynamic mike or miswire shouldnt damage the mike but it might burn out the phantom power supply in the preamp or mixer.

      Audio people are quite sensitive about their equipment and tend to become upset when someone damages their equipment. I'm talking about the roadie who makes this mistake while setting up for a performance or recording session.

      The result of this upset is when the boss takes his weapon and discharges it in the same general direction as the offender.

      This is the source of the previously refered to "bang" rather than a component in the microphone exploding.

      A poor attempt at humor.

        If everything is wired well, and if your wiring and plugs are in good shape, almost every dynamic mic will stand 48V. But if a single thing is wrong it is curtain time for that mic. It also only can work with balanced connections throughout the wiring.

        I don't understand where the idea comes from that you need a mic that goes down to milliHz frequencies and can stand bomblast spl's in order to record an organ. Just use any mic intended for the recording of instruments. Voice mics tend to flatter the voice band and/or have a boost in the mid range to give "air" to voice. But you don't need that. And believe me, any decent mic will be able to work with 130dB.

        So a small diaphragm condensor like the Oktava MC012 or the AKG 1000 will be fine. The AKG can even work on battery so that might be interesting. The AKG is omnidirectional, and the Oktava can be had with several capsules. The omni's go a bit lower in frequency but will have to be put closer to the organ. The AKG 3000 would also work. Just like a load of other mics.

        If you are looking for a stereo mic, then the Audio Technica AT822 or AT825 might be interesting.

        But placement will always be very important. Get the mics at the same height as the organ if you can.

        I have used the Oktava MC012, a Sony AMC-909A and a pair of Audio Technica MT830R (Lavaliers clipsed on a stand). It all works.

        Stay away from the loudspeaker as a mic please...

          If this were true, then you wouldn't find so many mixers with universal phantom power on/off.
