I will be singing (R&B, Reggae, even doing acoustics) and rapping (Hip Hop and Rap). Not exactly sure what you would consider my voice to be like, but I assume, deep/low when rapping and higher when singing. I'm just starting out so hopefully you guys can give me some advice on what mic I should get for my vocal work. I do also plan to record some of my ukulele and acoustic guitar playing, so would be nice if the mic was good at recording those aswell. And thanks to the guys answering on my last thread. I got the Focusrite Scarlette 2i2 audio interface. I know there are other factors to a good sounding recording, but based on the info. I have given, what would be your recommendations for Dynamic and/or Condenser mics that would suit me best. People suggest the Shure SM57 and SM58. They are great, but upon research and comparisons I have heard on youtube, I think there are others out there in the same price range that can do better for vocals. For example, I prefered the sound from a AKG D5 over them. Again, I am new, so it might not be as good for my particualr voice/style. I do not know. So I know the Shure SM57 and SM58 are the AK's of microphones, and I would most likely own one in the future, but for now, best sound quality is what I am after. The microphone would almost exclusively only be used in my small home recording. I won't be moving it around much and won't be taking to gigs or anything. I am hoping to get the best, clearest good sound recording I can get from a under $120 (each) microphone, new or used. I have looked up some, but the mics talked about are years old and there may be newer and better mics out (not saying the old ones are not good). I sort of prefer a more natural/flat sound so most people's listening experience would sound the same. (Is that correct? Or is a flat sound just not having bumps/character?) Well, anyways, I would appreciate it, if you could make a list of your top 3 or 4 (for my needs) under $120. Appreciate the help guys.
