    Tradtionally, it would be "put a microphone on" whatever you're talking about (IE I put a microphone on my cabinet, drum, voice, balls (troof), etc).

    Since mic is a contraction of the word microphone, and microphone isn't a verb, none of them are correct.

    I say mic'd because I like big black cock, FTR.

    The "proper" term would presumably be 'microphoned', so it should be mic'd. The apostrophe indicates the contraction of the word 'phone' bit - so leaving the 'e' in there is technically wrong. It really makes fuck all difference though, as long as you consistently uses the same variant everyone knows what you mean.

    That doesn't really work in a live sound situation when you say you "mic'd up the cab with an sm57"
