    I recently purchased the Memphis Blue Classic Dynamic Microphone and have found, like one of the other reviewers, that there is quite a bit of noise with plosives and breathing/wind. Are there any solutions to help reduce this noise? Can one include additional noise filter inside the housing - and if so, what material is recommended?

    What connector is needed to plug from the mic to an amplifier?
    A shopper on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: You need an XLR to 1/4 inch cable or you can get a XLR to 1/4 adapter. I am sure Monoprice sells one they make excellent cables & adapters just search in cables on there site. I bought one awhile back they are built well & have gold plating . You may need a 20 db pad for your mic also if your going through a mixer. I have the Memphis Blues mic, it has a very nice quality sound. Hope I was of some help.
    Does this mic include a cord with it?
    A shopper on Nov 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, the mic does not include a cord. You should also know the mic connectors are too close together making it nearly impossible to connect cord and stand. I had to connect the cord and then screw the mic on the stand. When I contacted Monoprice about the issue, they responded by agreeing with me and then calling the issue resolved. If you purchase this really great looking heavy mic, you may need to consider the possibility of returning it. I have mine attached to a chrome Atlas stand, and that's where it will stay.
    Is this easy to get apart up top if I wished to add dampening material, etc?? Or is it glued shut? I cannot see any screws to hold the top together and don't own it yet.
    A shopper on Apr 22, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I bought as a gift. But it is- heavy cast. I personally (as mechanic/engineer) would try to search manufacturer. Sometimes you can find a parts “exploded view” diagram, you can back engineer.
    If your going to take it apart- you might as well become an expert at it. Even if you have to contact the manufacturer, sometimes they are willing to provide to keep you a loyal customer.
    What do I need to hook this mic up to a mic stand? Will a standard "universal" clip work?

    BEST ANSWER: No clip is needed, the mic screws directly onto a standard mic stand where you would normally screw on a clip.
    Is this a condenser Mic & is it good for studio recording sessions? Also how compatable is it with any Focusrite Scarlett interfaces?
    A shopper on Jan 6, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: It is not a condenser, it's a dynamic mic. It works well in the studio and will work with your interface no problem. It's a very clean and clear sounding mic, but also a bit thin sounding. Also you will want a pop filter with this mic as it does pop fairly easily on plosives.

    Looks great, sounds great - BUT...
    I bought this hoping that it would be brighter than the popular, 3X-the-price classic from that well-known microphone manufacturer (which I find to be rather dull sounding). In that regard, it succeeds nicely. I also bought it because the internal element is supposed to be shock mounted for better isolation from handling noise. In that regard, it's a complete failure. Even a slight tap on the mic cable is transmitted as a thump to the PA speakers. Unlike the previous reviewer, I didn't find this mic to be significantly quieter than my other mics.

    I tested this against a few other mics I own including a nice studio condenser mic from that same well-known microphone manufacturer. I sang bits and pieces of several songs/styles for some friends using a broad range of styles from buttery smooth to raspy to breathy to gravelly/growling to falsetto, and this mic captured and reproduced everything like a really good studio condenser mic. My friends unanimously preferred the sound of this mic over all my others, with comments such as "more detailed", "fuller, richer sounding", "more soulful", and "makes the other mics sound dull and lifeless". Pretty great, right?

    But there's a significant problem - this mic is horrible with plosives and wind/breath noise. With a pop filter in place, it's fantastic, but I didn't buy this to use it in the studio, and I'm not crazy about using a pop filter in a live performance (although it is a consideration). I experimented with different techniques and found that if I sang at a right angle to the mic, that took care of plosives and wind noise - but let's face it, anyone who buys this mic is buying it as much for the cool look as for the sound quality, and holding the mic at a right angle while singing (or using a pop filter) just doesn't look as cool.

    I want to love this mic, and I do - for the cool retro look and the rich, detailed sound but I don't think I can get used to a right angle address in live performances so that leaves me with using a pop filter on stage which, to me, looks a little odd. Still, in the end, it has to be about the sound, right? And with a pop filter, this mic sounds awesome.

    Monoprice makes it hard for me to rate this properly - 4/5 seems too high, 3/5 is definitely too low - really more of a 7/10.

    PROS: Terrific sound - full/rich, bright, natural and detailed very cool looking heavy/solid, good build quality feels good in the hand on/off switch comes in a nice case good price

    CONS: Highly susceptible to handling noise requires a pop filter or right angle address to deal with plosives and wind noise
    Surpringly great mic for the price!
    Awesome mic for the money. I was really on the fence for awhile in purchasing this Memphis Blue version or the original Shure 55SH with its premium pricing. I am a DJ and needed a second mic on a boom arm attached to my console so it would always be ready for announcements. I use a wireless SM58 mic for 80% of my shows because I love the full sound with my speaking voice. The Memphis Blue was a perfect addition as it sounded similar, although a bit brighter. My big concern was it sounding like a â??cheapâ?? mic and capturing feedback easily from nearby speakers with its open field pickup. Well I am happy to report that for the cost, I made the right choice for my needs. It is surprisingly heavy and well made. For a speaking voice, pickup range is short and centered...maybe 2-3â??, which actually works for me. If I had to complain about anything it would be the switch. Itâ??s definitely not quiet when sliding and will produce a â??clickâ?? aNd itâ??s sensitive to rumble when touching the boom arm.

    Impossible to beat for the price
    So yes, you may see 5 stars and think "this is a perfect mic," but it isn't. Actually, I don't know if I've ever come across a PERFECT mic but for the price, this mic is pretty amazing. It's actually made of metal and is both heavy and sturdy. It has a booming presence and a heavy bass response which can be tamed by properly EQing and processing but really, ANY mic should be EQd and processed to get the most out of it. The switch is not silent, so I gaffed it to be permanently on. Bottom line, for a REALLY cool and really well made vintage-looking mic, you won't find anything near as nice as the Memphis Blue for the price.

    Arrived broken but fixable; Decent sensitivity once operating.
    Arrived basically DOA; went silent after a few seconds. Found out the switch was of poor quality but worse, one of the internal wires in the "neck" was pinched and exposed in the metal spring that carries wires up to the mic element and also grounds the cast metal head.

    Since I hate on-off switches on mics anyway, and were in too big a hurry to send the unit back under warranty, we deleted the switch, repaired the shorted ground wires, and the mic now handles and functions fine.

    The heavy cast metal body will tire out your wrist if you hand-hold it for long. I also would use a straight mic floor stand and not a boom for this mic, as the weight could make it tipsy. Arrived in an impressive padded hard case that should protect it well in transit.

    Nice Classic Microphone with a unique character, As described,fast delivery,great deal.

    PROS: Solid build,clear sound, Retro look.

    CONS: The only thing I would say and this is not a real big negative is you really have to turn up the volume and gain quite a bit to push this baby.

    Adds warmth and texture when I am streaming
    I know that my use of it isn't the intended use, but it's working great for what I do. I have a smooth jazz themed gaming stream, and the combination of my deep voice and the little kick of warmth this microphone adds is fantastic. This mic is *heavy* - I had to supplement my mic boom with a second set of springs at all the joints and tighten up all the fasteners to stop it from drooping. I do wish the screw base and the cable weren't so close together, it drastically reduces the angles I can mount it onto the boom at. This mic is prone to plosives, but keeping my face/mouth at a slight angle to it helped significantly. I connect this mic to a Behringer UMC204hd interface for phantom power. I am not adding any post-effects, just pure voice into the audio interface into OBS for streaming, and I get a lot of positive feedback. The noise "falloff" is fantastic for what I'm doing - as long as my mouth is within 3" or so it picks everything up very well, but I can lean back to talk to someone else in the room without the mic really picking it up. Air conditioner noise from a window unit about 10 feet away is inaudible, while it was oppressive with my Blue Yeti Pro. A good buy for the money! Note: for perfectionists, if you look too closely you will see little bits of casting in between the ribs. Not super visible, but once you see it it cannot be unseen.

    Vintage Look/Modern Sound
    This mic is an incredible mic for the price. If your going to take it out on the road and beat the sense out of it, i'm not sure it's going to last you a long time... But then again if you take the SHURE version out and treat it the same? It's not going to last you either. The difference is that this microphone will cost you 1/6 of the price of the alternative version, looks/sounds every bit as good, and the fast/efficient rate in which MONOPRICE gets your items to you is a quite impressive compared to the nightmares I've had with other music distributors in the past.
