    Alright, i know i keep asking about these mics. I just dont want to buy one, and then have to return it.
    I'm looking for a mic, to be used for rap vocals. The 2 i have boiled it down to are
    the Audio Technica 4060, and the Soundelux u195.

    Which one do you guys sounds more like modern Rap vocals on the radio. That crispy
    upfront sound, without harshness?

    any help is appreciated....

    Audio Technica 4060 gets my vote :cool:
    I am also a urban producer...I wish I could afford that mic :(

    Neither is gold plated, which IMO is an absolute requirment for "Rap" production.

    I have worked on alot of rap sessions. U87 is my choice. As boring as it sounds, it does the trick. Not too much coloration.
