Hi, I have been looking at this website and learning from it for a while now, and figured I would register so I could participate, so, it's nice to meet you all and thank you for all the help you provide. I purchased an MXL 990\991 mic kit, and I really don't like it. I would really value some opinions on the SP C1, C3 and the Rode NT2-A. I can only afford 1 right now, so I have to choose between the 3 of them. I will be using it for both Female and Male vocals, and mic'ing acoustic guitars. For the most part, the style is Pop and rock music. Thanks for your help on this.
