Microphone to speaker amplifiers

I want to make a microphone to 8 ohm speaker amplifier. I have tried using the lm386 op amp, however, the results were poor.
What other IC could I use for this project?

PD: It would also be of great help if any of you could send me a schematic along with the new IC since I am relatively new to electronics and still learning.

Assuming you use an electrec mic:
Google some simple microphone circuits, most only need one or two resistors a few resistors and tiny capacitors.
Connect the output to an amplifier that is of similar simple design.
