The way singers grip the microphone is a worthy consideration that is rarely discussed. At TVS, students are encouraged to train and sing with one of two TVS microphone grips. The primary benefit of adopting these microphone grips is the reduction of “tension creep” or unwanted musculature cramping and constriction that will take over a singer’s ability to sing more freely. In addition to these microphone grips, ergonomics is an important consideration when purchasing a hand held microphone. Microphones with ‘hour glass’ shapes to them as demonstrated in the following video are designed to fit the singer’s hand more comfortably.
Microphone proximity is the distance from the microphone element or diaphragm to the lips. Too often, singers hold the microphone too far from the mouth. When you sing with a microphone, make sure that the microphone is close to the grill or mesh of the microphone. Singing with a close proximity to the microphone diaphragm will really make a microphone come alive and its the best way to maximize its performance. Try these unique microphone grips and improve your singing immediately.
