Microphones

  1. I know this seems like the wrong place to post this, and has probably been asked before, but my search for this turned up really strange so i figured i'd deal with the flack and ask anyways.... I need a decent microphone for home recordings. I don't have thousands to spend on a microphone for my little ol' home recordings, but i do have some money. I would very much appriciate any advice you can give me on microphones, or tell me which microphones you use to record please. I have been doing some research, and i am not absolutly clueless on the topic, i just need some feedback. Thankyou! :)

    I'm sure a Mod will move it soon :D

    You did not mention what your primary use is for the mic. Is it strickly for your bass rig, or are you doing Vocals, Guitar or what? It makes a difference.

    these have been highly recomended to me... though I haven't bought one yet http://www.studioprojects.com/index.html

    I know a lot can be done with just a simple Shure SM57. I bought an AKG D3800M for dirt cheap off eBay a little while back to start with.

    I'm looking to get a vintage Electro Voice Dynamic and a Studio Projects Condenser down the road. I'm also looking at the little Peavey PV6 mixer to connect to my computer
