Great Microphone for Vocal EFX Processing
by Andy Baum from Brooklyn, New York, USAWholeheartedly agree with the previous reviews. One more thing - and this is something that I came across in user forums during the course of pre-purchase research: If you use any type of vocal proce... read more [+]ssing in your signal chain, the OM7 is the mic to have. It takes EQ extremely well, maintaining a clear and open sound. Compression can be applied without having to worry about feedback from the PA.

I send this through a TC-Helicon VoiceLive 2 vocal effects pedal. I am able to stay right on top of the mic capsule and the sound is nice n'clean with little or no proximity effect - and no distortion. The OM7's off-axis rejection prevents extraneous PA signal from creeping in and "confusing" the VL2 pedal. So, the pedal's DSP-generated harmonies are as crystal clear as the live vocal.
Lastly, the OM7 is built like a tank. This is truly a professional-grade microphone. close [-]

The best live mic out there period!
by Jim Barry from Aiken, SCI have been singing live for over 20 year professionally. I have never been so happy with a vocal mic for live shows. This mic shines best with a singer that has a strong voice. It is very clear, full... read more [+] and, will punch though a mix. The gain before feedback is unmatched by any other Mic out there. You can literally crank the wedges with no feedback. I have consistently gotten plus 10db over a shure 58 without feedback. Many people have complained about the lack of output and that you may need a Mic preamp before your mixer. I have only seen slightly less output than other mics and have had no problems making up for the input at the several boards I have used this mic through. Personally, I do not see the low output of the Mic to be a concern at all as it is not that low. It will also dramatically clean up your mixes, as the hypercardiod capsule will reject high stage volume like crazy. If you have a drummer that sings, this Mic is also a must. As long as you eat the Mic, this is the best live Mic you can buy for many reasons. close [-]
