    • Q:

      I'm looking for a dynamic gooseneck mic for mounting on the podium in a fairly small church.

      I'm looking for a dynamic gooseneck mic for mounting on the podium in a fairly small church with a relatively narrow space constraint in order to avoid feedback.

      Would either the AT808G or the U855QL be a good choice, and if so, what are the differences between the two models?

      Does one have better sound quality for speaking?

      Many thanks.

        The AT808G is in our Broadcast and Production Series and has a Subcardioid pickup pattern while the U855QL is in our UniPoint Series and has a Cardioid pickup pattern. You may compare the specifications on each of the microphone to see what will best fit your needs. If you have any further questions, you may contact Audio-Solutions at (330) 686-2600 x5000.
