2,000 to spend on Hip-Hop/Pop lead vocal mic

And it's come down to:

Peluso 2247LE

or

Pearlman TM1

My current vocal chain is AT4040, Digi 003 with an Avedis MA5. I will strictly be recording my own vocals and I'm looking for a warm/smooth sound. Thank you for your time and opinion!

save the ca$h

Get yourself an SM7. Everybody is using them. Perfect. The money you save should get you a wicked pre-amp and a bag of weed for the artists.

Another option, of course, is a used U87 (any incarnation.. dont worry too too about people's comments re: Ai version etc)

I would up your price range just a tad and get a Bees Neez U47 style, or maybe go for a used one. Then you'll def be in the $2000 range. I had my Peluso 47LE modded by BN and it's been a dream for pop/rnb/hip hop. I think an Arabella or Sally would be the ticket thumbsup

But yea those prices are looking a bit higher than they were before, used may be the way to go if you wanted a BN.

Who said anything about Brauner? Is this some kind of weak trolling attempt? heh

I was thinking about the Peluso 2247LE but what do you mean modded by BN? Is that necessary and how much extra does it cost?

BN stands for Bees Neez in my post. thought it would be okay to say "BN" after I had suggested you get a "Bees Neez U47 Style" mic. Sorry for confusion thumbsup

It's not necessary at all to go this route. I just already had the Peluso and it was a good contender for Ben's mod.

What exactly is Ben's mod? I have a 2247 so I may consider it.
Thanks

I just recently had a similar amount to spend and in the end went with the SE electronics Gemini ii which i picked up brand new for a scandalous price.

So far its been amazing. Heres a sample of male and female vox ive got from it (bare in mind im no pro so it could be alot better)

Its called straight from the soul but should appear straight away.
