**Why a quarter inch jack as opposed to a Lo-Z jack on the Mic? Just curious. **
Not sure...I'm not a singer...I'm a tattoo artist.
I sketched it, he liked it, and I pounded it in.
Thanks for the comments, though!
It was a fun piece. He wanted it simple, colorful and stylized, but had limited funds, and I was bored with doing PSU bullshit and answering stupid questions, so i figured I could kill a couple of hours....
I was real happy with the mic, itself. There wasn't much I could do to enhance the bass because it was supposed to be somewhat like his.

it's actually a balanced, or stereo jack plug. (note the two insulator rings on the plug) also known as a TRS jack (tip, ring, sleeve)
it's true a lot of mics run with 1/4" jacks, the one shown is almost certainly a dynamic mic, which doesn't need phantom power so using a jack is quite common especially on smaller live PA set ups, it would usually be an unbalanced or mono jack, although if correctly wired the balanced cable would work.
Thank you for that information. That makes me feel a whole lot better. I referenced it (as I usually do when i am not sure) in a guitar catalog that also sells mics, and they definately had 1/4" jacks...so I knew they must still use them.
