im looking for a desk top mic for my Kenwood TS-120S
i need to get rid of this hand held
I have a D104 lollipop and a Turner and I have another one that has ECHO built in.
Tallman dont need echo
in youre opinion which one would work best on my kenwood
im thinking the turner would do me right
To be honest I don't know. I always used hand mikes on everything.
I also have one that is retro looking it is an astatic and looks something like this.
If you’re on a budget, try an old school Shure 444 off Ebay. It’s been a tried and proven winner for years. Many hams still prefer them on their rigs like the TS-120S. The Kenwood MC-60A is another popular mic that has a built in preamp (on or off). The preamp is not adjustable, but will add a little audio boost when turned on.
yeah im gonna keep looking this SBE handheld is ok but a pain in the ass as well
I went the xlr route for ease of future upgrades. I got a used heil boom off ebay, a behringer xm8500 and a heil cable for a little over $100. I wasn't sure about the boom, but it is so much better than a desk mic. I'm still evaluating the mic, but for $20 it is pretty amazing so far. "Professionals" claim it is very similar in performance to the Shure sm58.
Are you wanting a ppt on the base, a hand/foot switch, or vox?
Funny how different we can be. I only went with a boom because of space constraints.
I would definitely go with some sort of a dynamic cardioid mic. Aside from that, its hard to guess what would be good for you, your voice, and your usage.
let me know what desk mic. your looking for chances are i have what your looking for. if not i can find it.
im looking for a decent mic for sideband maybe an old kenwood mic or a turner sidekick i currently have a sbe hand held seems to work good but tired of hand helds want a desk top with PTT and vox if possible
I'm a fan of the Turner +3 myself.
TBA im thinking thats the one im wanting
