I ended up buying 7 of these mics to replace the SM58s, Betas,and others... I still have my 8 ATM27HEs of which I still love. However, being honest - I found the AE6100s are fantastic for use in high end PA and my ATM27HEs are still my preference in small gigs and smaller PAs. All my Shures are gathering dust or being used for instruments... The proximity effects on the ATM27HEs are better in my experience, but the AE6100s are superior in their clarity. As the song says..."Torn Between Two Lovers"!!!

6100 Review

Am impressed enough with this microphone, had to write a review. Now first off let me explain my microphone judging background. I run sound for my son's band, about 2yrs now. I'm not a sound engineer, have very basic experience, not a studio technician just grass roots live sound limited hands on experience. So all of the things this mic doesn't do with a laboratory full of sound testing equipment I'm sure is true BUT, I can tell you this, we have two singers in the band and bought them both an AE6100 and last night everybody at practice could not believe how much better they sounded than what we had been using. Which was odd because before buying the old mics, everybody we talked to suggested them. I guess they had all never used one of these. They FOR SURE sound better than 58's and I mean WAYYY better. I've noticed in the last two years sometimes you get equipment that is suppose to be & sound better than what you already have but when you get it, you tell yourself its better but in all honesty sometimes hard to tell... NOT THE CASE with this mic, chevette vs corvette....

My Favorite Mic

This mic has it all! Frequency response holds up very well at the low end with a nice 2 dB rise around 200 Hz. There is the 6 dB rise around 5 kHz typical of many dynamic mics which is usually a good thing because it adds some crispness to vocals. Its off-axis rejection is excellent - when I have feedback issues, they go away when I take out this mic. You need to instruct your performers to address the mic on-axis, their voice will fade if they hold it like an ice cream cone. (This goes for any hyper-cardioid). This mic is distinguished by its relative insensitivity to plosives ("P" consonants). Some other mics have problems in this area. Its the next best mic to a condenser for outdoor gigs (my condensers never go outside of the studio).

Studio quality live

When our fans hear Kat singing with this Mic, they don't believe it is live (nope, not a back track). We switched from a CAD mic to the AE6100 and all our monitor feedback problems went away, plus the quality is amazing. It sounds great even through an on stage vocal effects processor (not even a high end pre-amp). The balance feels great, and the build quality feels solid. We won't use any other vocal mic when touring.

Best I ever had:

I have used different mikes (almost all) in the hope of finding one that stands out and works well with the TC-Helicon correct. Someone mentioned to me that the 6100 was a good choice. I gave it a try from Sweetwater and when I plugged it in I was blown away by the difference this mike made using the TC-Helicon Correct. I am a singer so I use different microphones to achieve the sound I want. You can not go wrong with this mike. I have used it exclusively since getting it. (3-4wks ago). I would be very unhappy if I had to do without it and would instantly replace it.
