Christmas Gift Idea (for me)...What do you think of this packaged deal from GC?

    I usually hang out over in the amps forum, but am asking my parents for some recording gear this year. I was thinking of having them get me this deal from Guitar Center, it's the first item on the page. I know the PreSonus TubePre is a good mic preamp, as well as a good bass preamp (some bassplayers swear by them!). But is the AKG Perception 100 a good condenser mic? It says the frequency response is from 20hz-20khz, which is pretty much the spectrum of human hearing. Would it make a good vocal mic for recording, as well as a bass cab, guitar cab, & drum mic? Both of these usually go for $100 or more seperately, so it should be a good deal. I also have some old preamp tubes in case the stock one in the PreSonus sucks.

    Would this be good for someone who's just starting into the world of recording?

    Thanks for your help!
     
  2. It'd go for it. Just get a 15 dollar pop filter and you'll be set.
