    Hi all, i'm ready to buy my second recording mic. I've got an sm58 for gigs and a rode NT2A for recording. The rode is a gorgeous mic but im not sure if i want to fork out the money to buy another NT2A. I need a good all rounder for vocals and acoustic instruments but without cutting the quality at all. Im thinking maybe I should hold out a little longer and get another NT2A but i just dont know. Its not urgent yet. Any sugestions? Thanks
