The title of this thread isn't meaning anything, I know. Here's what I would like to do: I'd like to have some input on microphones that can catch a band playing acoustic, for example, or quiet electric amps (1-5w) and that you can simply put in front of them. I know some of them can catch the room and you just have to play with them in order to create dynamics. I've seen some old mics that are spherical but I don't know their names, of course. What are the types of mics I should look into? Thaaaaaanks!
