Looking at getting a new mic ot two myself, and the OM7 is on the list. However, being
"close to the lips" is not always possible, with (for instance) an energetic lead
guitarist that is also the lead vocalist that, in pursuit of his art, will move away from
the mic whilst playing / singing. Just how close does it have to be to have a sufficient
level at the mixer trim pot? Is it because of a low sensitivity that the feedback
rejection is as good as they claim? Stages we sometimes provide equipment for are often
very reflective (we always ask for those venues to put some dampening material up, and are
met with "it will be done by the next time you're here", and invariably never is) so the
feedback rejection is paramount. Does anyone have both a Beta 58 and an OM7 for an owners
opinion? Or one of the Beyers? We use their TG mics on the drums and have been very happy
with the sound out of them. Loud stages are the norm too, despite repeated attempts of
asking them to quieten it the backline levels seem to creep up and we do have a few "can I
have some more me!" vocalists as well. The OM7 was looking favourite until I read about
vocalists having to be close. Just how close?
It's my most vivid memory - and you're telling me it never happened?
