Hello all, [B]PLEASE HELP[/B]! LOL. I am new to this whole thing (and admittedly pretty dumb when it comes to electronics) I am building a 4-dish parabolic mic array for outdoor use. I will be recording with a Zoom H6n recorder. I am looking for microphone suggestions/insights. It appears that many dishes use lavalier mics. As I am 3D printing my own parabolic array, I have the opportunity to use pencil type condenser mics, But as I am new to this, I really have no idea what I should be looking at.\n\nI do not have alot of money for this project, and I found a pair of mics for about 0 US. I am looking at these: [URL]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CZ0RLU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1[/URL]\n\nWould these be appropriate for my use? Or should I be looking at lavalier mics? I am hoping to stay in this same budget (About 0 US for 4 mics) The dishes will be connected via XLR cables to the Zoom recorder no more than 25' away. I am afraid that 10' is a bit close, so I purchased 25' cables.\n\nThank you so much!\n\nI am [I]not anywhere near [/I]adept at electronics - so homemade gear (mics, preamps etc) are not quite out of the question, but close. Off the shelf is preferred.
