Ive Got $800 to Spend

Discussion in 'Pro Audio Equipment' started by cunardsoundconcepts, Sep 26, 2005.

  1. I need a LDC and preferably 2 tom mics. I would like to get two 421's but that only leaves me with 200 for the LDC.Opinions/Comments appreciated. TIA!

    Save yourself the trouble and send me the $800. :lol:

    Seriously though, you can alwasy spend the last $200 on an AT3035. They street out new for $199, even at Sweetwater and if you buy all three mics from a sweetwater rep they'll usually give you a price break.
  4. WOW! You guys are quick to respond!!! Thanks for the advice! Let me edit this post slightly.If you were me and your needs were such,what would you do?

    Well, the 421's are so versatile. You can use them on drums (toms), they're nicely intimate for acoustic guitar and a decent mic for vocals as well. You can't loose having 1 or 2 in your mic locker.

    The 3035 is a great mic and a super bang for the buck. Female vocals, acoustic guitar, some woodwinds and a decent overhead and room mic.

    If you were inclined to buy 421's to begin then there's a reason for that and you might wanna just go with it. The remaining $200 would get you 2 X 57's or 58's or even 2 X Audix i5's, or 1 X AT3035. Not bad choices to have any way you look at it.
