Trying to decide between three mics

I have the scarlett 2i2 for the interface. Also my room is treated.

Studio - Album on Imgur Here is a link to a couple of pictures of the room back wall is the same as the front.

Im trying to decide between the NT1-a, AT2035, or AT4040. With the first two I can get everything else I need with it like the stand, XLR cables Ect... for the price of the AT 4040.

So with my room being treated is the AT 4040 that big of a difference over the other two, or with my treated room can I get a pretty decent sound with the previous two??

I would go for the 4040 every time.

Don't skimp on mics - a mic is mature technology that will last forever if you get the right one.

+1 on AT4040.
I was very disappointed with my NT-1a, so I sold it. I have 2 x AT2035 and I am happy with them, but the difference with the 4040 is big.

Sounds like I will most likely be going with the AT 4040
