    Best mike for recording an archtop?

    The SM-57 is designed with a 5dB peak in response around 6500 Hz. That helps vocals and some instruments cut through in a live performance. A mic with a flatter high frequency response may sound more natural.

    Condenser mics tend to be flatter, but some have a presence boost. Here’s what Neuman has to say about that.
    How Frequency Response Helps You to Understand the Sound of a Microphone
    Classic ribbon mics have a much different response, gradually rolling off above around 1000 Hz. But modern ribbon mics have response specs that vary all over the place. Seems to me a good condenser mic and EQ could end up with a similar response to a classic ribbon mic, if that’s what you wanted.
