I sat down with an audio professional friend to A/B a couple of Audix mics he had for sale: OM-5 vs. OM-6.
We both agreed the OM-5 suited my voice much better than the 6, and I've relied on it for almost every gig for the last 2-3 years.
But the other night I used a Shure Beta 57A (with a phenomenal house system and great engineer) and was quite favorably impressed. Slightly more forgiving pickup pattern.
