I'm looking to buy a Great River ME-1NV, for use with mostly hip hop vocals, and some female singing. Do you think this is a wise buy? and what mic would you recommend for up to a 1000 USD?

p.s. I have an M-Audio Omni studio interface / Delta 66 sound card.

Great mic pre. it's hard to go wrong with the Great River. I would recommend you demo a few mics before actually buying one if you can.

Cool. I was thinking about:

AKG 414 ULS or TLII
Audio Technica AT 4060
Studio Projects T3
AKG Solidtube


Do I need a TUBE mic for hip hop??

Also an Audio Technica AT3060 ..

Any of these will give me good vocals for hip hop/female singing .. mostly rapping though, or any other recommendations? please stay in the 1000$ range. Thanks.

didz, on your "other" thread, I neglected to mention the Studio Projects T3.

I tried it at NAMM and was extremely impressed with it on my voice. Am a "crooner" though with no hip hop singing experience at all.

The 3060 is kind of weird as it has a "tube" originally designed for hearing aids!

Add a 57 to that list just for a reference. I can't find a mic that I like better on my voice.
