Hey guys , Which ribbon mic is worth looking at , under 1000 dollars ? ( Is there one in that price that can do a great job and handle a large dynamic range ) At the mo we have a rode nt1a , but it sounds like it shits itself when my wife starts to let rip ( a rattly distortion ) , unless she moves back 3 feet or so . Its definately the mic doing this , I have looked at the gains and nothing is near to clipping but it still happens. I want to be able to capture her when she lets rip , at a closer range . We have had success with a sm57 in the past , but Id like a fuller range with a little more warmth warmth . Mostly I want to record vocals , but versatility would be a bonus .
