Thoughts on this microphone configuration?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I come to the forums today to ask if the microphone configuration I have in mind is good, or if I should change out some things to be more price efficient, better audio, etc. Basically, my old headset microphone configuration isn't very good, but I don't want to buy a new headset so I am thinking of getting an actual mic and a boom arm to keep it near me. The parts I had in mind were as follows:


Sennheiser E835 Microphone



Rode PSA1 Boom Arm



On Stage Foam Ball-Type Mic Windscreen



..And finally, I'm thinking to add a Mixer to my setup in the way of the Alesis MultiMix 4



As you can tell, I don't have boat loads of money to be throwing around on this, so I tried to keep it within a reasonable price. I will be using this for Twitch streams and YouTube videos. If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts on this setup, please let me know.


Thanks for the help,

I'd rather go with an SM58 for the same price

I'd say it looks pretty good, but I would suggest against that windscreen. The E835 had one built in to it (albeit, not a heavy duty one). If you want something to help against aspirated plosives (like when saying the letter p) then I would suggest a pop filter instead (it will sound better).
