Hi I'm new here, but you guys seem really helpful so here goes. I'm looking for a mic to use in my home studio. Right now I have an AT4050 which I like, but I'm in the market for something a little better. The mic will be used mainly to record my voice and some accoustic guitars. I already ordered a T.H.E. Audio KR-33a , but I didn't like it on my voice, and had to send it back for other reasons. I've been looking at a few mics that seem interesting: the BLUE Kiwi the BLUE Mouse the Soundelux U195 Some of the Microtech Geffell stuff also looks cool. The only mics I would be able to try are the BLUE mics, but I'd hate to pass up some other really great mic. Also I have really shyed away from tube mics just because I'd rather spend $1000-$2000 on a really good non tube mic than spend the same money and get a medium quality tube mic, but mabye I'm wrong here, let me know So set me straight. What do you guys think about these mics, or should I look at something else. Thanks.
