Writing a good blog post is a lot like writing an essay. Your blog post should be concise, informative, persuasive and engaging.
The best blog posts are the ones that are practical — those where you can see yourself or your business in the text. For example, here at Reverb, we write a lot of posts about different microphones (such as “How to Choose the Best Mic System for Your Venue: Dynamic vs Condenser.”)
We do this because we sell microphones and we want people to come to our site and buy them. But also because it’s practical information that readers can use when they’re shopping around for mics. If we just wrote about how awesome our mics are without giving readers any practical information, no one would read it — nor would they buy our mics.
When you are choosing a microphone system for your venue, it’s important to consider the size of your space and the type of events that you host. In this article, we’ll outline some general guidelines for choosing a microphone system.
If you have any questions or need assistance choosing the right microphone system for your venue, please feel free to contact us.
Microphones come in all shapes and sizes, but the most important factor when choosing a mic system is the type of venue you’re playing. All venues will have unique acoustic properties that will affect your sound. Indoor venues with hard surfaces like concrete or tile may be too reverberant for vocal microphones, while outdoor venues like amphitheaters or stages in parks may require long-distance microphones to capture singers on stage.
Here are the best mics for common types of venues so you can choose the right mic system for your space.
We’ve developed a handy guide to help you identify the best microphone system for your venue. It summarizes the pros and cons of each mic type, along with some factors you should consider when choosing your setup.
We’ve divided this guide into three sections. In section A, we cover microphone systems or mics that are specifically designed for use in large venues with high ceilings. In section B, we cover mics that are designed for use in small spaces (e.g., home studios) and smaller venues (e.g., coffee shops). And in section C, we cover mics that are designed for use in medium-sized venues (e.g., churches, theaters, and schools).
Section A: Microphones for Large Venues
Some microphones are better suited for use in large venues than others. If you’re looking for a mic to use at church, theater, or school, read on!
Section B: Microphones for Small Venues/Home Studios
If you’re looking for a mic to use at home or in a small venue, read on! Below are our top picks from Shure, Audio-Technica, and Sennheiser.
Section C: Microphones for Medium-Sized Venues
For many venues, the sound system is one of the most important pieces. And while there are many components that make up a sound system, microphones are one of the most critical elements to having a good sounding sound system. However, not all mics are created equal, so it’s important to make sure you have the right ones for your space.
To start off with, let’s talk about some of the different types of microphones.
The first thing to consider is the type of music you want to hear in your venue. Most modern microphones are designed to pick up a wide range of frequencies which may or may not be applicable to the style of music you play. Every microphone has its own set of frequency response characteristics that will determine how it will record different instruments and sounds.
The second factor is the size, shape and acoustics of your venue. A small venue requires less equipment and can be achieved with a single microphone setup, while larger venues require multiple mics and complex setups to get optimal results.
The third factor is the type of music you want to hear in your venue. The more complex the music, the larger and more sophisticated the equipment you will need. A simple setup with one mic works fine for most genres and sizes but if you want a high-end sound system then you’ll probably have to invest in some high-end equipment.
If you’ve been in the audio industry for more than a week, chances are you’ve heard of Reverb.com. The online marketplace has become the gold standard for musicians and audio pros looking to buy and sell new and used gear, from vintage guitars to modern studio mics and everything in between.
We figured this was as good an opportunity as any for us to dive into the technology behind Reverb.com and see what makes it tick. More specifically, we were curious to learn how the company manages its content: not just listing items on its site, but also processing customer inquiries, writing blog posts, and pushing updates to various social media accounts. We spoke with Reverb’s head of marketing Adam Radzicki and content manager Nick Bowcott about their editorial workflow. Here’s what we learned:
Like many fast-growing businesses, Reverb started out by performing every task themselves–which includes writing all of the copy for product listings on their site. As time went on and their staff grew, the company hired a copywriter who was responsible for creating all of the product descriptions using a basic HTML template. But even after adding this role to their team, they still had a lot of content that needed to be created, including blog posts and various social
