Purchasing the Best Mic for your Church and Pastor
The most important thing we do as a church is point people to the love that God has for them. While we do this in many ways, for most churches the message time of service is the focal point for sharing God's Word. The right microphone can be the difference between someone hearing about God's love for them or missing out, making it the most important microphone you'll use.
It's my opinion that the speaker's microphone is the one microphone that you don't skimp out on. I believe it's worth spending a little money in order to get a mic for your church that will provide clear, articulate sound while your Pastor preaches. Almost as important as the sound is finding a microphone that your Pastor is comfortable with.
Handheld, Lapel or Headset Mic
I had a Senior Pastor once who only wanted to use a handheld microphone. He always sounded fantastic, clear and we rarely had to be concerned with feedback. Most Pastors don't want to hold a microphone while delivering their message, however. Lapel (lavalier) clip microphones, popular 20 years ago, can work under some circumstances, but are not the best mic choice for clarity and freedom from feedback. For those who want their hands free but a better sound than a lapel clip mic can provide, we have a variety of headset mic options with both single ear and dual ear fits that would be a perfect option for a pastor.
Best Selling Headset Mic
The Countryman E6 headset microphones revolutionized presenter microphones years ago and they've not slowed down since. The current version, E6i, is our top selling earset microphone. In fact, we sell more Countryman earset microphones than anyone else in the world! We want your church to have a great, clear and articulate mic, so we pass those savings on to you every day.
Mics with More Natural Sound and Less Feedback
If you can afford a better microphone, you can move up to the top of the line DPA microphones with the 4066 dual ear version or the new single ear d:fine headset. While there is an increase in cost with the DPA headsets, you also get a more open, natural sound and additional gain before feedback.
If you have questions about which pastor microphone option is best for your church, call our Certified Retail Sales team and they will help you find the option that is right for you.
Free Demo Mics for Pastors to Try
In order to help you make the right choice, we also have a number of microphones available in our ?Try It Free? program. Let our staff know that you'd like to try one of our Countryman or DPA earset or headset mics and they will set you up. No charge.
Regardless of what type of microphone your Pastor is most comfortable with, be sure to invest appropriately in getting something that will sound great. After all, it may just be the most important mic on your church stage.
