Studio Projects C1 by zgraf
I bought a used Studio Projects C1 because it was reasonably low cost ($250) and because it had very good reviews on a number of sites. As a microphone it's fairly good. I have used it on acoustic guitar and vocals, and it seems to do a good job. I leave the hi-pass switch engaged most of the time, otherwise recordings (esp. vocals) sound too bassy. I like the way it sounds when I record my voice (low baritone/bass), in comparison to another microphone (Rode NT-1) which sounds dull and bland. On the other hand, my wife's voice (soprano) doesn't sound nearly as good when recorded with this mike as it does with the NT-1. Guess it just shows you need to have a microphone locker with several types of mikes for different purposes.
