Best Mics for Male Vox and Acoustic Under $2000 Condenser Microphones

Best Mics for Male Vox and Acoustic Under $2000

Or even a little over 2000. I'm planning on getting a really nice mic this year and probably matching it with a pacifica.
I mostly play steel string and my voice is between baritone and tenor, sometimes soft, and sometimes screamed.
I know it's impossible to quantify this stuff without trying them out, but some suggestions and experience would really be appreciated.
thanks!

The Pearlman mics should get serious consideration to fit that bill.

I am in the exact same boat. Your thread describes my needs to a T, so I'm wondering the same thing. I have really been wondering about the Pearlman specifcally. I would be pairing it with a Daking and 2-610 for now. I do plan on getting the Pacifica at some point though.

For male vocals I like 47 best, followed by SM58.

thanks very much for the replies.
so i guess U47 copies are thought of as a good place to start for male vox and acoustic?
what are the differences between mics like the peluso, the lawson, or the pearlman?
are there any others?
any opinoin on how these compare to lower end tube mics like rode, mojave, or audio technica?

New U47 Shootout!

pearlman and peluso are supposed to share common elements / parts but i have only heard the 2247LE and not the pearlman.

if you are onto 47 clones, search and you will find an abundance of threads, and not surprisingly, opinions.

I would recommend doing a search... there are so many great mics in this price range.

Check out Peluso & Pearlman among others.
