Sennheiser e865 - $269.95

e865-1c If you are in the music industry, you know the name Sennheiser, and for good reason. No one can deny the rich sound that comes out of any of their microphones. One of our favorite vocals microphones from them is the e865. This one is actually a condenser, so it has much more gain and much more detail than most other live vocal microphones available.  

Lewitt MTP840 DM - $269.00

lewitt_0003_ams-mtp-840-dm_c As you've seen in our past articles, Lewitt is making appearances everywhere. This is one of the fullest and best sounding dynamic microphones I have heard to date. This is the type of clarity that singers (lead or backup) are looking for. Taking off the grille, this unique dynamic microphone has a multi-step high pass filter and a three-step amplification stage ranging from 0-12 extra decibels. There are even LED's to indicate where each switch is positioned. Lewitt has made the perfect microphone, rugged and innovative enough for touring.
