To make your live vocals cut through the mix, you need a microphone that lets you dial in the the most gain possible before feedback. This calls for a well-made microphone with a supercardioid pickup pattern. The only problem is that supercardioid vocal mics tend to be fairly expensive. AKG's P5 handheld supercardioid dynamic microphone is one of the most affordable way you can get the results you're looking for. The P5 not only gives you a tight and powerful vocal sound, but it's also designed for routine live use. An internal windscreen blocks out breath sound and minimizes plosives, while keeping the diaphragm itself free of moisture. Plus, the P5's rugged, die-cast metal body is though enough to last a lifetime.
