Ding...weigh in with your 2cents!

I just started using the site...just awesome. Thanks for everyone's feedback. I digres....

In my MIC collection I have a Blueberry and a TLM - 103. If you were me and you had to add one mic with $1000 budget which one would you choose????????????????????????????????????

As a breakdown of what I record:

70% rap (vocals)
20% rock & r&b (voals)
10% A. Guitar

I'd say a Shure SM7b. They're killer on vocals and can work well for guitar sometimes too.

I would buy several less expensive mics, mostly dynamics.

AKG C451
Sennheiser MD 421
Shure SM7
Beyer M88
Beyer M201
EV RE20

Select 3 or 4 of those.

a tube mic? maybe a Telefunken USA? they are near $1000-ish

maybe something with variable patterns, like a 4050. for $1000 you could have a new 4050 and a new SM7...you might like the 4050 better than the 103, I know I do.

since the blueberry and the TLM-103 are bright mic's you could use a dark one for diversity in your collection, like a 4047 or a tube mic.

Paul, check out Gefell. UMT70S is an awesome mic. acouple hundred more than your budget but well worth it. If you're looking for a dynamic then SM7B all the way. Excellent for vocals, guitar cabs, close micing drums. Needs a good amount of clean gain though.

From cheaper stuff I like these:

1/ Shure SM 7
2/ Akg C214
3/ Shure KSM 32

maybe saving up a bit more and step up to a higher end....?

SM7b

Get one and put the change into a nice pre-amp. If you gotta wait to buy the pre...do so. The SM7b is wicked and a lot of the hip-hop guys i know are going for it as a cheap alternative to the ridiculously expensive SONY.

the SM7B is no where near a alternative to the C800g. Both mics are great but sonically not even close.

if you want the sony flavor on a budget try out the Peluso VTB (which can be had for $1000 or less)
