This is just for fun, list all your microphones.

Here’s mine:

Shure SM58 (1)
AKG C1000S (1)
Shure SM81 (1)
Equation F.20 (1)
Neumann TLM-102 (1)

I probably use the 58 most often on stage. In my home studio I use the TLM-102 for most everything.

At my desk I just plug in the Snowball to the pc. It's a good one.

I got a yeti. Picks up on me nicer than my own ears sometimes.

AKG Perception 400 LDC; Shure KS 109 SDC; Audix OM2 (which is very similar to a Shure SM58). These are all for stage use, not for recording.

2 Shure KSM 27 - warm, rich sound that are one sided for great feedback protection,
5 Shure SM 58, good instrument mic that you can to lean into,
3 Audix OM-5, awesome vocal mics that work great in loud rooms and provide hyper feedback protection. Think loud bars or clubs, but plan on "eating the mic".
2 Shure Beta 98H clip-on mics, for banjos that works great with Shure wireless,
1 K&K Trinity mic system in my Martin D16, also works great with Shure wireless.

Sure SM 57, and Phonic DM680. Interestingly the Phonic mic is a cheapo that came with our PA system, and is much hotter, and sounds much better than the Sure. I've been using the cheapo Phonic for 4 years now, and just keep the Sure for a back up, in case the Phonic ever breaks.

Off the top of my head...



Neumann BCM104



Michael Joly modified large diaphragm condensor



Groove Tubes 5sm



RØDE NT-3 (2)



Shure SM57, SM58, SM7b, SM53, SM54 (a few), 315 ribbon (best upright bass mic I own when used with a CloudLifter CL-z), KM-33 (2) homemade 7bs using vintage capsules, dynamic omni with fins (I never did learn the model), V88, 345 Unidyne III with swivels and without (a few), Unidyne A-v, others...



ElectroVoice 8 or nine assorted including an RE15, 664 (2 or 3), some condensers



Altec — a few



AKG — D870 (8) C3000 (2) C3000b, D-112, C1000S



Sony — ECM 22M, ECM 22P (4)



sE — Voodoo vr1 ribbon



Calrad — a few if I haven't given them all away.



Realistic — 33-1065 (2)



Although Star Trek Next Generation cut the cables and used these as props for various diagnostic tools, when used as microphones, these weren't half bad for $20. They made pretty good drum overhead mics. You could plug them into a cassette recorder for recording sound effects or interviews in stereo. A single AA cell gave you many hours of recording time. Nowadays, they sit in a drawer. Time marches on...









No doubt, I've forgotten a few.

The AKG C3000B is a great mic.  I used to have one.

The C3000B has been our main single band mic for stage use of over a decade. When we have been an opening act the headliners have sometimes asked to use it.

Want another? I have one that's barely used in the box. <10 hours, probably less. I bought it to replace a lost 1st version C3000 that I use in a matched 3-mic stereo array. Then someone found and returned my C3000. 



The B is a great mic — I fired it up just last week to A/B/C with my voice-over mics just to see how it compared. Pretty well, actually, but with a few ribbons, a Shure SM7b and a Neumann BCM 104, it's redundant in my locker.

Shure 57's and 58's. Not fancy, but reliable and predictable. And, not only are they idiot-proof, they are nearly musician-proof.



I also still have a couple of ancient high impedance Shure ball mics that still work. The 58's are much better, though.



The best recording mics I have used were Neumanns and tube mics. I don't have any of my own, though.
