Hey guys. Looking for a mic to run through my Avalon 737sp to record Vox. My voice is thin and sounds like Richard Marx and Dennis DeYoung blended together.
I need something that will give me some fullness/character/open top end/some bite etc.

Any opinions are sure welcomed. Think sound not budget BTW

Thanks for your help.

Thanks bro!!.
Im not just looking for EXPENSIVE mics BTW. Im looking for ones that will make MY voice come alive from the voice description I gave in my first post. I can grab Brauners, Telfunkens, Neumanns etc of the websites but it doesnt really tell me which one would be a good match for MY voice. Its tough ya know? I have a descent pre but there is NO WAY I can audition all those mics. know what I mean?

Find a local company that rents out Pro Audio gear and make friends with them.

Usually, if they are not too busy, they will let you audition their mics.

If they are snobby, just pay the rental fee for a day with the U87 and see if you like it.

Most decent rental shops will have that mic available.

That mic with the Avalon is probably as good as you'll get quality-wise. Any let-down will be in your voice, not the gear.

The other option is pro singing lessons!
