sorry for another one of these what to buy threads. I'm currently looking to spend about 300$ on a mic, used mainly for vocals, but additionally versatility is obviously a plus. Right now I'm running on a MXL v63m (100$ at the time, i think they're like 60$ now). My front end isn't that great, running into a M-Audio Tampa Preamp (it's solid state but it does warm up the signal) So first, are there any you guys would just straight up recommend. These are the ones I'm looking at now: MXL v69 Tube Mic 300$ http://www.zzounds.com/item--MSEMXLV69ME If I get this one, I'm probably going to invest in a Telefunken tube for it Audio Technica 4040 http://www.zzounds.com/item--AUTAT4040SM I hear just overall good solid mic that compares with akg414s and Neumanns for the price. Also maybe get a second one in the future for overhead drums. Studio Projects TB1 Tube Mic http://www.zzounds.com/item--STUTB1 Only thing I'd say is it's not as visually appealing as the other 2 mics for the customers.
