Live microphones are often described as dynamic microphones. Compared to condenser microphones, are more rugged and are able to withstand loud sound pressure levels (SPLs) such as guitar amplifiers, loud vocals, and drums. Although not as sensitive as recording microphones, or condenser mics, they still make an excellent go-to mic, especially if you are on a limited budget and just want something for $100 that is not going to sound terrible. Bono, the lead singer from U2 famously uses a Shure Live Microphone in the recording studio. Many dynamic microphones are shaped to fit against guitar speakers or drums, especially kick drums that can be particularly difficult to mic.
