Favorite microphone or preamp? Vocal recording tips?

Hello Jordan, I want to ask what is your favorite microphon for female voices and the one for male rappers?
Do you favor a microphone preamplifier to accompany with this?
Do you have any tips for recording vocals to share?
Thank you very much.

Thanks for the question! Generally speaking, I love a telefunken ELAM 251 for female voices. It’s got a smooth top end which really helps female voices shine. Most often I’ll use a 1073 into a CL1B.

for rappers I can vary. But the Sony C800 has been my microphone of choice on rappers for ages. In the past I’ve also used a U87 which is less bright and can round out a rap vocal nicely at times. But the c800 is definitely more of the modern bright sound you hear on most rappers now.

As far as vocal recording tips, I posted some great videos on this subject on my YouTube page youtube.com/djswivel - those will be far more in depth than anything I could write here! Hope they help!

Best,
