I currently have a Blue 8-Ball and an Oktava MK-319 that I use for vocals and use a GT Brick for my pre. I must say that I'm not fully satisfied with either of these. Luckily, I got them both really cheap! I was wondering if there is a vocal mic that works well for both male and female vocals for under $1000. I've used pretty much every mic in my collection including an SM57, but out of all of my mics there isn't one that really delivers on vocals for me. I mean...the 57 kicks ass when I have a screamer in here, but when I have a truly good vocalist in here I want the mic to match.
