Which microphones do singers use?

Asked by MarcoDemarco (211 points ) August 7th, 2012

Hey I’m curious to know which microphones singers use. For example, what microphone did Adele use to record “Set Fire to the Rain?” Ideally I’d like you guys to provide me with the singer, song, and microphone used.

I’m looking for reputable resources here so try to provide a link if you can.

Thanks in advance.

Here’s a link for alot of microphones.
Some singers are private about the microphone they use in a studio. Adele used a Neumann KMS 105 nickel-plated wired vocal microphone for her Grammys in 2009. SOURCE also mentions several other groups that use Sennhieser / Neumann mic’s.

Use be a couple of groups, handled the sound systems along with playing an instrument and singing. We visited and used a few studios with their microphones.
