I am upgrading from my mxl 990. I have a budget of $300. I will be using it for rap/ singing vocals. Please give me some options. I have looked at the AKG Perception 420 and the sE Electronics sE2200a.
Thank you RobThe trouble here is that it's like choosing paint if you're an artist. You can talk about the brands and the formulations, but when it comes to picking the actual colours - so much is what you see. Here, we're all guilty of selecting mics based on other people's taste and hearing, coupled with their voices and instruments and spaces. I'd actually paid no attention to the Senn MK4 that is the subject of the early posts here - but in the past week I've heard some good examples of it being an excellent choice for a mid range female voice - it flattered her. Buy from somebody you can send it back to with no quibbles.
