Considerations when renting or leasing a specialty microphone
When you are renting a specialty microphone, you need to make sure you are matching the microphone to the application. This ensures you are getting the right microphone. Are you going to use it for recording vocals or an instrument? Do you need a condenser type of microphone or a dynamic condenser? Consider the pick-up pattern (omni-directional or unidirectional), and the style. Additionally, consider the manufacturer. It's generally better to choose a microphone from a well known company with a good reputation. You should consider looking at reviews before choosing a model as well.

Features of specialty microphones

Because there are so many different types of microphones that fall into this category, the number and types of features available on the microphones will vary. Typically a "basic" microphone will have a handle or a stand. Some will have on board controls, while others will need to be controlled through the recording or amplification system instead.

How specialty microphones work

They work in the same way as other microphones. The microphones will take audio from the surrounding environment and amplify it, allowing for recording. The sound could be ambient, or from a voice or an instrument, for example. The microphone is a receiver, which takes in the sound. Then, the sound needs to go through a recording system or amplification system.

About specialty microphones

When you start to record music, or when you are recording audio for a film, documentary or a live performance, having the right microphone can make all the difference. However, many people simply don't have the money in their budget to afford specialty microphones that can handle various jobs in the recording field. For example, you may find that some microphones will record drums better than others will, or that some are better for certain types of vocals. These are specialty microphones, and they can run the gamut. They may also have different form factors that can make them more advantageous.

Specialty Microphone Applications

Because there are so many different types of microphones that fall under this umbrella, they can be quite useful in a number of scenarios. The following are some of the most common applications:
  • Live recordings
  • Recording instruments
  • Podcasting
  • Interviews
