|Good Mic Amps?|
So, looking into buying a microphone and amp. I know Shure sm85 is
what I want for mic, but I have no idea what I'm looking for with
amps. Any advice? List is fav -core vocalists.
|1||Jeff Moreira (Poison the Well)|
Such insanely powerful harsh vocals, and while early cleans were crappy by
the end they were pretty damn solid. Plus, lyrically the guy is amazing.
|2||Jacob Bannon (Converge)|
You know why.
|3||Frank Turner (Million Dead)|
Certainly a distinctive voice, but admittedly his vocals aren't quite brilliant.
His lyrics on the other hand...
|4||Greg Puciato (TDEP)|
His range is pretty damn impressive, and all his vocals are strong.
Admittedly doesn't put much emotion into them though.
|5||David Marion/Adam Fisher (Fear Before)|
Eclectic but entirely engaging. Alliteration bitches.
|6||Frank Carter (Gallows)|
Really intense vocals whilst rarely becoming typically 'harsh'
|7||Daryl Palumbo (Glassjaw)|
|8||Jay Forrest (Hopesfall)|
Satellite Years era
|9||Nathan Winneke (HORSE the band)|
Another really eclectic but strong vocalist
|10||J.R. Hayes (Pig Destroyer)|
Awesome lyrics, awesomely intense vocals
Passion, strength and lyrically ability. ++
|bump da fuck up|
|Oh, forgot to add. As cheap as possible.|
|Needs more Jesse Leach! The guy's amazing. Same for Brock Lindow.|
Also, I'd highly recommend a Line 6 amp of any sort.
Honestly though, if you're looking for an easy way to record guitars at excellent quality, try the Line 6 POD xT live. It's an all-digital USB in (no mic or amp necessary), and while not traditional, I've used it as my primary means of recording guitar for two years now, and I would honestly not do it another way. Not to mention it's a great effects pedal!
|You are talking vocals right? If so, the Marshall AS50D is primarily an acoustic amp but it's got an XLR input for a mic so you can play guitar and use vocals simultaneously, i've used it loads times and it works nicely.|
If your talking about mic-ing up a guitar amp you won't be wanting an SM58, maybe a Rode M3.
|Yeah vocals, thus the list of vocalists. I'm thinking atm, because I'm on a hideously shoe string budget, I'll just wham it through a mixer into the bass amp, or maybe get a Wedge or something, then work my way up to a proper amp.|
|What kind of thing are you gonna be using it for anyway?|
Home practice, actual shows, recording?
|Practice for now. By the time we're ready for shows I should have the money for something decent.|
|what u want is a power amp and a PA (aka speaker). vocalists don't use "amps".|
