    Hi, this is my first time posting a question on this site and I guess first of all I would like to say that this is a great site, and everyone always has great and very usefull advice that has come in very handy over these past few months. I recently started building my studio around a 002 and am mainly focused around hip hop, pop, and RnB. My vocal booth is set up in my closet at the moment while im am still stuck in my appartment for the time being.

    So here comes the 1400$ question- Which mic should I get for 0 to 1400$??????

    I would like to get a couple nice mics before I go spending several thousand on a very high end mic pre. So for now I have a MXL V69ME mic and "The Brick" mic pre that this new mic I am buying will be going through. And no I have no problems with the V69, I would just like some more options for my singers. In fact I find the V69 to be an incredible mic for the price, and after just having graduated at Full Sail university I have listened to a large list of high end mics including 414's, Neumann's, Royers, Blue, ect., and the V69 has done a suprisingly good job compared to many of them.

    *Note that this mic will be mainly used for VOCALS (mostly male)

    So far I have been looking at the:

    Gefell UMT70S
    Langevin CR-2001
    Brauner Phantom AE
    AKG C 414B-XLS
