Just want to see what people like for vocals, etc. Something in the 100-300 dollar range (US currency :-)

I've been looking at akg and a rode nt1-a, as well as some cheaper mxl mics..

I am a fan of Rode and I have an NT1-A - works great for vocals and also is great fro acoustic guitar.

I liked it so mych that I moved up to a Rode K2 and that is even better!

I don't think you can get a better mic than the NT1-A in its price range, allthough there are a few worthy contenders.

+1 for the Rode NT1-A - it's a great all rounder in that price range.

Cheers,

I have a 3035 that I picked up on eBay for $100. I'm very happy with it but I haven't really given it a good workout yet. Hopefully soon. It'll take 158db with the -10db cut engaged. Sensitive at low volumes too...I gotta get a pop screen still.
