How do I choose the right microphone?
A microphone with a frequency response range of around 80 Hz to 15 kHz would make a good choice for a vocal mic. However for miking snares and toms, you would look for a range that starts lower, at around 50 Hz, and for a bass drum mic, you will want a low end of 40 Hz or even lower, down to 30 Hz.
Do DJs use microphones?
Mobile DJs use the microphone extensively, so for them it’s part of what they do. But even DJs who “don’t use the microphone” sometimes have to – it’s unavoidable. You may have to issue some kind of urgent instruction, or be asked to introduce the next DJ, or want to advertise the next event at the end of the night.

Why do singers put their mouth on the microphone?
Direct mouth-to-mic contact is done to increase the volume of the singer’s voice, as well as amplify low notes (this is called the proximity effect). This is done by singing into the mic as closely as possible in order to be loud enough so your voice isn’t drowned out. Placing their lips this way reduces distortion.
