I'm a vocalist+acoustic guitarist new to home recording. I'm looking for a cheap large-diaphragm condenser mic to lay down some crisp, clean vocal tracks. My budget is ~$200.
After scouring the web for I-don't-know-how-many-hours, two mics keep rearing their heads: the Rode NT1-A (~$200), and the MXL v67g (~$100).
Does anyone have experience with either of these? With both? How do they differ? Is the Rode worth the extra 100 bucks? Apparently it comes with a pop filter, shock mount, and XLR cable...are these any good?
Any opinions appreciated! Thanks.
