Dynamic and Condenser feedback differences

FAQ #1145 Updated September 01, 2017


I was thinking of getting 4 or 5 SM86 microphones for our worship team. I was also going to use them to mic our small choir of about 20. My reasoning being since they are condensers they would get good enough gain to feedback ratio. Would this work good enough? Why or Why not?
