I'm waiting for a hand made Beesneez Phelicity which is going to be my revolution!
And I'm planning on buying an SM7B soon, but it's so cheap that I keep procrastinating...

If those are too colored I guess i'll pull out my old Røde NT-1, the original white one (not NT-1a).

What sorts of voices go well with your MD441? I haven't used mine for vocals yet.

I think you should try it out. I used it more for voice-over stuff, for both capturing strong but warm male narration voices and to smooth some over annoying female voices, too. But I also use it for some folky, singer-songwriter projects and if I want a bit "retro" sound... Mine is a MD441N from the 70's, I'm sure some funk singers would sound fine through it, too - like here : YouTube - Stevie Wonder - Superstition live on Sesame Street

With MD441 you can get that vintage "alienated" - "I am singing on the radio" vocal, not the more usual "all the details in your face" LDC sound...

Among those, I usually always get the sound I want except once a few years ago when a particular singer only sounded good through a Shure SM57... but that was only once. heh
The magnificent 4 .... I hate you heh

So far I have bought the CM7 (M7 cap) it's sounds wonderful on my voice, I'm really chuffed.

Next up (in about 10 years at this rate) I want a Bock 151/251.

The Sm7 is nothing special outside of spoken word broadcast. The Shure Beta 58...Now There's a great sounding dynamic! Smokes the Sm7.

Phew!

These are mostly for my voice, but the 4015 smokes on most things i've tried.

Also sung through a Calrec pencil once...was nothing short of mind blowing (compared to u87 and one other i can't remember).
Its freaky when a dry, mono, soloed vocal sounds 3D.

I'm so glad to see all the SM7's listed!
I just won one from ebay for $289 and can't wait for it to be my go to vocal mic.

U87ai as of now.

Sennheiser MD441... 2 or 3 times now I've used this for scratch vocals and ended up just using a lot of that on the album. Sounds awesome! I use it for live vocals often too.

Sometimes I'll use a Shure SM7B if I'm trying acoustic guitar at the same time.
