When your recording environment requires a bit of versatility, Blue's Multi-pattern Series microphones deliver. Designed around our custom hand-tuned capsules, these uniquely designed mics offer a diverse sonic landscape, whether it's a guitar in cardioid mode, background vocals in figure of 8, or an orchestra in omni. The choices are almost unlimited! Plus, if your recording application requires M/S, X/Y or a simple stereo setup, a pair of these multi-pattern mics opens up your recording space to even more possibilities. With Blue's Multi-pattern Series, you mic locker will be infinitely expanded.
Every Blue microphone in the Signature Series contains its own propriety capsule that is hand-tested to capture a specific sonic signature. Blue's philosophy is to create microphones that are unparalleled for their intended application. For example, the Mouse is a low-frequency focused microphone that specializes in capturing the bigger-than-life lows of kick drums, bass amps and deep vocals, whereas the Dragonfly is designed specifically to capture and thicken thin sounds from soprano vocals and instruments like drum overheads.
Designed to be the versatile microphone every musician craves, the Essential Series is capable of capturing the essence of any audio source. From guitars, basses and drums to woodwinds, brass and vocals, these microphones deliver the full spectrum of audio for today's demanding digital recording environment. With full extension in the top, mid and low frequencies, your signal source is brought to the front of the mix, yielding an extreme presence, as if the instrument or voice was right next to your ear! Whether you're just starting out and need your first great mic or you're looking for the perfect "go-to" mic in the studio, the Essential Series mics offer the best range — and value — for your recording needs.

Lavalier microphones....rent vs buy. SFO
Hi I need some major advice. I am doing a roadtrip documentry, and need to setup some audio equipment. The car will be driving, and I need the equipment for over a month. Also I am on a limited budget. I have canon gl 2, and I was thinking I would run three Lavalier microphones into it.
I know next to nothing about audiio equipment. So I have no idea how to gauge what quality I want to get. But in my mind, consumer dvd quality video would be about what I am hoping for.
So what type of mics should I get? I was looking at getting three Shure SM11 and run those to a Studio Adpater/Mixers
A friend of mine is trying to get into the music business, on the production side. He is in the process of setting up a studio and I wanted to get him a good quality mic. I know nothing about musical equipment. Any good suggestions on brand/model and some ball park prices? Also, any place in San Francisco to get them?
thanks in advance.
