Hey everyone I'm Wade, I'm 15 and a rapper, My voice is on the deeper side, I'm looking for a <$500 Condenser Mic to record my vocals with. I have a pop filter, Blue Icicle preamp and a Vox Soundguard to accompany the mic. Also I have researched for countless hours reading forums and reviews and understand that each mic sounds a little different for each person. But Some feedback would be much appreciated with what mic I should go for as I'm very confused as I have a few to choose from, here they are. MICROPHONES - Blue "BlueBird" (Seems to be a trusted mic and reputable brand - Solid reviews especially for Vocals) RRP $299 - Rode NTK (Once again a trusted company and solid reviews) Amazon $499 - MXL Genesis (Marshall Electronics a legendary name in Audio + Looks Amazing! + Great Reviews) Amazon $500 - Audio Technica 4040 (AT 4040) (Classy Black Finish- Audio Technica respected brand - Rave reviews) Amazon $300 - MXL V67G (Another marshall mic - Meant to sound as good as mics 3x the price!) [Not a big deal but looks kinda ugly.] Amazon $100 - Rode NTA1 (Great Rode mic - Tried and tested ) Amazon $260 If theres any other mics you think I should buy instead please tell me, but adding more options will only make it more confusing for me So also make sure to mention which mics I should eliminate from the list would greatly help too. I'm eager to start my rap career and start making some quality music.
