Best mic type/model to use with boom poles, indoors, with low ceilings? My experience with shotguns is somewhat hollow sounding (echohy?) results. Perhaps the AT897 is just not good enough? But I suspect it
Try using a slightly less directional mic ......still condenser but cardiod pattern.. and then try to get a bit closer to the subject.....
Also get them to face diagonally across the room (toward the corner rather than a flat wall)..to break up some of the reflections
this often works.... good luck
