Hi Guys - I've had the chance to ask for help on studio monitors (and have settled for the MSP5), and now the next obvious question is on microphones ... Considering I can't get anything too pricey, how do you feel these options compare (or if they're utterly useless) : Marshall Elec. MXLV69LE AKG C3000B Shure KSM27/SL I'm looking for something around the 350$ range, tops... I know this kind of question usually poses a dilemma (i.e. if they're all crap, it's better to keep your money or buy their worth of SM57Bs). They would basically be used for recording voice and acoustic guitar. Best, and kudos to the list - I've learnt a lot from it (and the most important thing I've learnt is that I know more than I hoped, but less than I should ) Best, Marcus.
