Mojave, MXL, sm7 mic question


I am looking at getting one of the Mojave Audio mic kits, and was wondering if the ADK capsule that comes with the complete kit is any better than an MXL 2001 capsule.

Full kit = $500
Retro fit = $300 + $80 for MXL 2001 on ebay.

Am I going to be able to tell the difference between them? Does anyone have experience with either one, or have insight into MXL quality control?

Also, I've read alot of posts about buying good dynamic mics. I am buying this so that I have a good lead male vocal mic. Am I better off buying a shure SM7 that I'll always have and use?

I own both. The MXL/Royer mod makes the mic much smoother and a much better mic, well worth it IMO. It's more versitile than the Shure. I'd say, if you are recording percussive Micheal Jackson / System of a Down style vocals, get the SM7b. If you are recording Luther Vandross / Vertical Horizon style vocals, get the MXL and mod it or buy it built.
