Kristin's microphone of choice is the Audix OM6. "The sound is very precise, and it picks up the wholeness of my voice without altering it," says Kristin. "It captures the natural tone of my voice, which is important, because not all microphones do that, and you want to keep it as close to the actual sound as possible." The mic has also helped her perform more consistently, she says, and that gives her peace of mind because she knows exactly what to expect. "I know what it's going to sound like at every show. It's so helpful to know that I don't have to worry about fighting with the microphone. It's just easier to perform well when gear works well."
