I'm looking for a mic, either tube or fet, $2500 or less. This mic will be for my own personal use. I will be recording mostly one singer who has a soulful, almost amy whinehouse like voice. She tends to be a bit sibilant. It's just how her voice is-- she is a professionally trained singer it's not her mic technique it's just the frequencies her voice seems to hit. Loved her on a vintage u87 I tried at a friends studio though there quite a few sibilance issues that were hard to tame even with mic placement and eq. I would ideally like to have something I can use for her voice and my acoustic guitar. Sounds like an AI might accentuate the sssssss based on what I'm hearing, but I'm still trying to track down someone who has one that I can just try out.
