Mic for amplifing live classical guitar

Date Updated: August 22, 2017 FAQ #2440
Question:
What would be two choices for a mic that would be suitable to use to amplify live classical guitar? My main concern is to reduce feedback howl.
Answer:


1. Gain before feedback involves the entire sound system, not just the mic.
2. Recommended models:  KSM137; SM81; PGA81.   All are condenser mics with a flat frequency response.
3. Also use a shock mount holder like the A53M.
