    I'm thinking I'm going to buy a ECM8000. So I have another $50 or so to find another multi-purpose mic. I'm currently looking at the Nady SCM 800, and the Nady DM70. I've already got an SM57 and will be getting the ECM800, so I was looking for something that would have different sound characteristics than the those 2.
    Which would any of you all recommend?

    Does it have to be a Nady? A MXL V67g would be a nice choice to have a different character microphone in your possession.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    I suppose one good $100 mic would beat 2 $50 ones.
    As long as its versatile Im interested.

    I can vouch for Nady scm 900. I've been using it on its own to record grand piano and I've been able to get some very nice sounding and usable tracks. Nothing award winning, but good enough for a demo.

    I did my own shootout for about a dozen inexpensive (<200/each) mics that I had picked up based on digging around on several forums. My particular application was somewhat unique in that I play tabla. I was looking for something to accentuate the bass drum and the V67g was outstanding. I have signed up to have Michael Joly mod it to get a little more clarity on the high end. I picked up a like-new V67g with the isolation mount (which is normally a seperate purchase at around $25-30) for around $80 shipped.

    I'll post the results of my shootout one of these days - my friend who helped me with it did a frequency sweep for each mic as well so its interesting to see how the audio corresponds to the measured frequency responses.

    Incidentally, the main mics that my friend uses (he does quite a bit of live PA work for East Indian music/vocal concerts) are the Behringer B5. The B5 is another very inexpensive mic, available for around $65, that has a relatively flat frequency response.

    You'll have to translate British Pounds to $$$ to find the real cost.
