Help me picking mics (Stereo Pair) - voc & oh

Hi guys

i would be happy if some of you can help me to make the "right" choice.

Budget is about 250-300 Euro (about 350 $). I know it's very tight...

I want to use them most for overheads and pop vocals or a acoustic git...
The best is, if i can buy them in germany or europa. you know tax, shipping coast or sending back about guaranty could be a "problem" from outside europa.

so i'm thinking about:

- SE ELECTRONICS x1 (two of them 280 Euro)

- SE ELECTRONICS SE 2000 (two of them 180 Euro)
seems to me a bit very cheap?

- AT2020 (two of them 200 Euro)
also cheap all rounder?

- Gauge ECM 87 (two for 250 Euro inkl. shipping, without tax - don't know what i have to pay for the tax)
I saw good and bad meanings for them..."great for the price" and "overpriced for rebranded china mics", and i can get them only from usa.

- Fat Head (two for 349 Euro) sadly a bit more out of my budget..but maybe the best choice? a bit pricy here in germany.


Maybe you have another typs or mic pairs for my list?

Thanks for any help

Thanks for your link.

I bought se 2000 and did some tests. i like them on overheads and for some vocals (dependent on the song)

I also got one mxl r144. very nice. a bid dark or muddy on vocals but great as an overhead and for guitars. have to buy a second one ;-)

next time i will try the adk a6.

thanks
