Looks to me like a lollipop capsule type cardioid microphone Guitar34. Exactly which I can't tell from teh video - likely ones are any of the Blue Microphone models, M-Audio Luna, Audix SCX25 or CAD Trion. I'd guess one of the Blues for no other reason then they've been around for a while and pretty much restarted the interest in lollipops.

Minor bit - why bother with the shock mount if you are going to carry the damned mic like that blink.gif ! Video producers arrgh they make me mad.gif at times because you then end up with singers who don't know how to hold a mic as all they know on mic technique is what they've seen on a vid. Rant over with smile.gif .

Btw the vocal effect is almost certainly more to do with the eq on the mix then the mic.

Cheers,
Tony

Shock is to stop the mic ringing when it, or its stand, gets knocked and to stop sympathetic vibration from the stand with any other sound frequencies. Shock basically isolates the mic from the environment. With most pro end mics a shock is pretty much essential for clean recording; trying to remove a sudden bang, squeal or low end rumble because a mic wasn't isolated is a right pain in the backside.

What I remember of the video, the way the singer is cradling the mic negates the whole point of the shock - also a mic like he has really should be mounted via its shock to a stand. Personally I hate it when singers hold mics too close to the mic capsule - blocks and deadens frequency in an unpredictable way rather like wrapping a cushion round it. If you have to hold it then hold the body and not the capsule wink.gif .

Cheers,
Tony
