    Skip to bottom for tl;dr

    So a little backstory first. So I used to gig quite often in high school with both an original band (progressive rock/indie) and a cover band (Rock/Funk). I eventually got a hold of a Mackie Onyx mixer w/ firewire (unbeatable for it's price, seriously) and started recording with it. I was by no means a pro audio engineer, but I prided myself on some decent mixing abilities. I had an array of sm57/58's, a couple of Studio Projects B1 condensers (unbelievable for the price, check youtube for sound demos), a Beta 58, and this mic (usually used for our lead singer live -this is a given, as it is an excellent vocal mic- and I think I used it for bass some as well). So, for a hobbyist, I was set up pretty darn well, except for one issue. I was never completely satisfied with the kick drum sound in my recordings. It seemed impossible.

    Fast forward to about a month ago. One of my old high school buddies was now doing an apprenticeship as a sound engineer in a pro studio in Philadelphia and I was going to school for Computer/Electrical Engineering. He wanted to start jamming/gigging again for fun and possibly some extra income as well. So, I broke out the old mixer to hack around with some recordings. I had tried every microphone on my kick drum except this one, so I figured what the heck, might as well try it. I also made a subkick microphone out of an old car sub and some resistors I took out of the lab to see if this could fix my problem. Well, the subkick project went quite well, but I was absolutely shocked at the kick drum sound I was getting from this mic. It sounded verysimilar to the highly regarded and more expensive Audix D6. So out of curiosity, I checked out it's frequency response curve and compared it to the D6. Not surprisingly (but still shockingly), in close miking, this phenomenal microphone had a very similar frequency response curve to the D6 and was able to handle slightly less, but very similar sound pressure levels (a necessity for kick drums, as they are LOUD up close. I had finally solved my kick drum woes! Punchy, with no distortion, and it could pick up the low frequencies needed for kick drums. I need to pick up another one or go back to the Beta 58 for miked gigs!

    Too Long; Didn't Read: Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these babies. They are not only one of the best vocal mics you can buy, but also sound unbelievably similar to an Audix D6 and can handle high sound pressure levels.

    Warning: while they can handle high SPL's, if you tend to beat the crap out of your bass drums (I mean REALLY crush the drum), I can't say with absolute certainty that this mic will not distort. However I tend to play really hard, and it has worked beautifully for me thus far. So, I would say this microphone should be more than fine for the vast majority of drummers. It can't be beat in it's price, and I really cannot say that this mike has any flaws at all, except for maybe an on/off switch? Who cares, nobody uses those anyway.
    It comes quite close to perfection. Everyone but the most picky sound engineers or vocalists (and even those guys really) will find no microphone that they can say are better (although some may prefer another mic). Some may prefer other microphones to this one simply because of the way in which they prefer to mix. But in my humble opinion, this microphone simply outclasses every microphone I have ever heard in it's price range. It rivals and often surpasses MUCH more expensive microphones).

    Even if you tend prefer another microphone (which is totally understandable if you just like the reputation of quality and durability for something like a Shure), you really should add one of these to your collection. While I have heard nothing about it's durability, I have used this mic for 7 years and have yet to have even a minor problem. The sound quality speaks for itself.

    If you are looking for your first mike for either recording or live, you simply can't go wrong with this one. It is highly versatile, and is totally worth the extra few bucks over slightly cheaper mics. It can produce a high quality sound from virtually any instrument (from vocals/guitars to kick drums and basses). It absolutely demolishes Shure's similarly priced mikes at lower frequencies and I like it better for vocals, but Shure products are the standard for a reason.
    Slightly more expensive than say a Shure SM58, but the price difference is negligible given this microphone's superior all-around versatility. I've never tried to hammer a stage together with one of these, but I would bet a lot of money that it could be done quite easily.

    NOTE: please do not try to hammer a stage together with one of these, I was only making a point. You are solely responsible for any damages that are done to this microphone, and agree to not sue me if you break it (haha).

    I've owned this mic about five years. It's always sounded great, but got to the last gig and it didn't work. Figured it must be the cable but no it was the mic. Surprised I have never had a mic fail to work in over 30 years as pro musician. I'm always careful to not drop my mics and pack with care. Don't understand why it would fail. Looks like durability is not as good. Considering what to buy next as this mic sounds much better than all my shure mics(even beta 58). Learn why to always have back up at the gig.

      Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

      Was singing Friends in low places in a key that was to low ,so when I got to the low part, my Shure sm58 would not pick up the vocals because there was not enough pressure in my voice for the mic to pick it up. Then I got my e/v 757 and it will pick up a soft whisper. It was so good that 3 more people in the band bought them. I've been using mine for 20 years now. Love it. Nuff said.

        Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

        I was so pleased with the 767a, I bought another as a back up. I was a dedicated "Shure" man for years and they are incredibly durable and very dependable microphones, but for the money,this is the best microphone you will ever own. It has the clarity and response of a Condenser without the pitfalls of that format. The EV VOB technology lets you get up real close and sing. Would be suitable for soft as well as heavier music; it is very forgiving if you "eat the mic."

        Will it hold up over time, will it be as rugged, as road worthy as a Shure mic? Time will tell.

          Perfect Live Vocal Mic

            Comments about Electro-Voice N/D767a Dynamic Supercardioid Vocal Microphone:

            Excellent vocal reproduction. Huge proximity effect. Others have commented, and rightly, that this is not a mic for the inexperienced. The way I hear it, it has 3 levels of "hotness". You can yell at it from a foot away and it is true to every nuance and pretty hot by any standard. About 3 inches away you can drive it with much less force. If you get right on top of it, like closer than an inch, it effectively doubles the volume.

            That's why people say it's not for the inexperienced; you must have good mic technique to get the most out of this mic. If you adjust your personal volume to match its 3 levels, you will get really great vocal reproduction. If you are sloppy, it will translate into wildly varying levels.

            If the material requires you to scream and whisper, and you don't have someone babysitting your level, you will find this mic very useful.

            If you are accustomed to an SM-58, this mic will take some getting used to. It's much hotter. Also more clear in my opinion. Its proximity effect is more pronounced and starts a bit further out. Kind of like a double proximity effect.

            I haven't had this one long enough to comment on its durability, but I have used EV mics in the past and found them to be pretty tough.

            I've used lots of different vocal mics, and I haven't found any I like better for live performance.

              I did an in-store side by side comparison with every vocal mic in the store from the cheapest to 3 times what these cost and this mic beat them all! This mic had more gain, and clearity than all the others. The bass response is so big and full but without losing any clearity plus you cant hardly make it feed back. Simply the Best Mic in the store at any price hands down. So I bought 3 and took them out last weekend and WOW!. Our vocals were clearer than ever and our monitors were louder than ever and NO feedback. This is EV's version of the Beta for much, much less and IMO these are better than Beta's. If your needing a mic or mics for your show dont pass these up! Great Mic. Buy these now, you will not be disappointed.

                As a lead vocalist, I have been an EV user my entire life (well, at least since I have been able to afford higher priced mics). I have owned this mic for well over 2 years, used it as my main vocal mic for rehearsal and live gigs( I did but a 967a just because I thought, well if the 767 is this great, the 967 must be better, the 767 is still my main mic). I have tried SM58's, Shure's Super 55 Retro, and I just like the sound of my voice through the EV mics much better.

                I bought this mis to replace a AKG that I loved but got lost afer a gig somehow. It has a very clear tone with some emphasis on higher frequencies so I had to adjust my EQ and effects but that was easily accomplished. I added just a touch of distortion ( 2 out of 10) and that really seemed to fill out the sound. You do really have to get up close and personal with the mic to get it to project but that's fine because it is very good at rejecting extraneous sound.

                Well, you never know till you plug it into a PA. But as far as Yamaha and Peavey systems go,I would say get the low end AKG or Shure 58. This is NOT louder, but does has a different EQ, and this being boosted in the mid-highs seem to make it sound way to bright,also distorted, and then you have to lower the volume to avoid feedback. As a live mic, i was very disappointed. I will stick it in my closet to try as a recording mic.

                This my third one. Have an older 767 that I have used for 6-7 yrs. Had a relatively new one dropped onto a carpeted stage from about five feet - cracked the diaphragm. I believe I have actualluy seen people hammer nails with an SM57 :). In any case, I suppose it just hit at an angle that did it in, but... Purchased an Audix OM-2 to replace it. Nice, but can't get as much volume out of it. So, got another 767 for a good deal. Hopefully this one will hold up to what any dyanamic mic should be able to endure.
