alison Omnidirection microphone for session (22) Omnidirection microphone for session 21 Jan 07

I am wanting a microphone that will pick up all the players in an Irish session without specifically mic-ing anyone up, or plugging them in.

has anyone got any experience with using the sort of omnidirectional mic that sits in the centre of a table, or the ones that dangle over your head?

what works? what doesn't? any brands better than others?

are there any which can automatically turn down the banjos when a harp is playing? (just kidding all you banjo players) - but seriously - is that a problem for any of you that have used them eg the louder instruments drown out the quieter ones?




Has anyone
