A room will always have resonances at frequencies related to the rooms dimensions. These will cancel or reinforce themselves in different places in the room creating nodes and antinodes. In a small room they are inconveniently in the middle of the low end. The upshot of this is that in certain places in the room the bass will be boomy at a certain frequency and at others the same frequency will appear to be nonexistent. A neutral/flat frequency response "measurement mic" will allow you to find out where the frequency balance of your room is closest to the ideal and allow you to place your recording mics for the least coloured response. We usually use specific mics for a specific purpose because of the 'colour' so, when measuring the room you need a mic that doesn't add 'colour'.
