avaen1,

Hey, I like that hat! I also like your attitude – consider what someone has to say and see how it jibes with your experience.

Just consider the conversation between DR and myself a discussion between two old codgers. We really are not enemies, just old guys with somewhat different types of experience and observations. If you see a point of disagreement between us, just perform an experiment that will tell you which is right. You will have learned something!

For example, put an SM81 and an SM58 beside each other in a somewhat reverberant room. Connect them to your mixer and EQ them for maximum volume without feedback. Which mic tends to feed back at low frequencies the most? Which one tends to have more high-frequency feedback? Or is there no difference between them?

What did you learn? If you choose to do this experiment, tell us what you learned.
