Ok, I am out of my depth here.
I am looking for some advice on a good hand held mic type to get for presenters to use while speaking.
I was planning on spending maybe $1000 or so on a mic and wireless setup (not including amp and speakers etc) and really would like to get the mic part right. I have tried a couple of cheaper systems but I have found the person needs to hold them very close to their mouth to get decent sound. I am assuming they would be quite good for singers and those with good training but not really what I'm after for the average guy or girl giving a speech.
I don't necessary need a brand recommendation, but really just the technology I should be looking for would help. I was thinking something along the lines of a Shure SM86. Perhaps this?
anyway any help would be much appreciated
