    Hey guys, I'm about to buy a KSM44A, to record mainly vocals and speech, etc.

    What are your opinions on this almost US$1000 mic?

    Would you recomend something different for the same price?

    Update: Just stating, I also record softer and screaming rock vocals. Need some versatility.

    Swiss-Army knife mic. Built like a Shure. Works on ANY source. Is very sensitive to the characteristics of whatever preamp is being used and will faithfully reproduce the source in a very generous and yet neutral way. They can take a good amount of SPL. Excellent rejection in cardioid and fig of 8 pattern settings. As good as any mic in that price range. Extremely great sounding on acoustic instruments and is the regular choice of many bluegrass and country acts for onstage micing of dobros, mandos, banjos, etc etc.....Again, built like a Shure.

    +1 on the 44. Great mic. I also like the KSM 32 a lot.
