    im planning on upgrading my mic which do you think would be better for brighter vocals?..i only have a budjet of 1000 dollars for a mic and a preamp, or just a mic, im leaning towards the at2050, but the bluebird is slowly gaining my interest.

    What mic do you currently have? What pre-amp(s) do you currently have? what kind of application is the mic for(i.e. Music style,Voice overs, etc.)?

    I would strongly suggest prioritizing the uprgrade of your pre-amp.

    I know I know, everyone one wants to get that bright shinny condeser mic to be able to make recording sources blissfull. I've totally been there and wasted more money than i should have on cheap condensers.

    The truth is even if you have a really nice Neumann going through a crappy pre...its going to sould like crap.

    Invest in a good pre and maybe a good dynamic mic.

    Both of those have plenty of high end which may be what you are looking for. I use an AT 4040 when I want a little extra on the top end.
