I've always wondered what mic Kim Deal of the Breeders uses live. I'm talking about the crazy static one she uses in 'cannonball'.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=MrskdW533C4 You can see it in use here.

Any knowledge?

I always assumed it was a normal mic that was distorted. I think Frank Black used the same one here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oncqJb-nzFI

I know what you mean, but it seems to look like a specific kind of mic..

That just looks like one of those "bullet" mics that blues harmonica players use.

Yeah, I know what you mean- but again, it just sounds way too fucked up to be one of those bullet mics.

Most of those have volume control, so you could overdrive it before it goes to the PA. They could also have separate effects on that mic, which would mean pretty much any mic with its own FX loop would do the job...

i would say it is a shure 520dx bullet, this does have some dirt on it but they do have a pretty dirty sound for vox as it is. then next to the 520dx is a shure sm58.

if you are after the particular sound of that mic then i would go for that mic because effects won't just make any mic sound good, they all have completely different characteristics in the way there are lumps and bumps in certain frequency bands as well as the polar patern ie: cardioid, super cardioid, hypercardioid, omni, figure 8 and so on and so forth, the cable, the preamps of the desk. etc

here is a very good place to learn about microphones, but in the end it is down to the listening and the engineer for how it sounds out front
