    i have to buy a good condensator mic for my home studio in order to record voice and acoustic guitar primaly...
    i thought about:
    AKG xls II
    AKG solidtube
    is there anybody who can help me to choose the right mic?
    someone could also suggest me some other mics...

    IMHO... Try a Shure KSM44.

    For the price, I am just blown away by this mic.

    Some other options to consider:

    Microtech Gefell m930
    AT 4060

    All these companies make mics that are really nice around the 1K range.

    The Lawson AIR is superb for vocals, and the Shure KSM44 works well for a voice/guitar mic. The AT4050, is, like the 414 and the 44, a multi-pattern mic, so it has real flexibilty to handle lots of situations. My brother-in-law had a SolidTube and ditched it pretty quickly. It just didn't have a very smooth,LD sound and the Chinese tube in it kept "spitting". I recently purchased an AT4047/SV and love it.
