I don't have anything from them myself, so am not speaking from experience, but in that price range, you might want to have a look at what Rode has on offer.I am starting to add male vocals to some of my recordings and wanted to invest between $200-$350 for a mic as a start.
Could someone give me a tip on which mic would be a good one to purchase?
You've got me interested now in this Gauge Precision emulation of the U-87. I'm always looking for a nice large diaphragm Chinese mic. I wonder if it's worth ordering one, with no first hand experience. How do you find it for P-popping on male voice? What about for drum overheads?
