Zoom H2n vs Tascam DR100 Mkiii - internal mics advice
« on: September 25, 2021, 10:20:44 AM »
I sold off my very good recorder and mics a few years ago now. I'm thinking of going to a concert next month for the first time in ages and feel I want to record it in a simple and hassle free manner for completeness (i.e. just using internal mics). I have a Tascam DR100 Mkiii already - are those mics any good at all for recording loud rock music? I seem to remember they overload easily? I've read good things about the Zoom H2n and it does seem suitable for amplified rock music. Would I be better getting the Zoom (or something else) or is the Tascam up to the job for loud music?

I don't have either recorders but I can't imagine the Zoom would be an upgrade. Maybe someone who has used the Tascam will give some input.

Buy the Tascam, because it has excellent mic preamps while the Zoom H series are far inferior. You may not care now, but you will when you eventually use external mics.
