    G'day All,

    I'm recording second album and due to producer moving, I've decided to take on the production myself....

    I have a great Guitar, Bass and Drum sound and just about to work on Vocals, (pre-production is finished.)

    I'm using Nuendo and looking to get a decent mic and mic pre to record with, have a great room - just need the vocal hardware.

    I do the old school Dio, Dickinson, Halford type vocals - if you check the track you can hear the vocals from first recording.

    Budget is not really a concern, just want would be the best quality gear, if I'm going to buy a mic pre and mic - I'd be keen to spend what ever it takes to get the best sound.

    Any suggestions, recommendations would be great.

    You will hear many different opinions about the Neumann TLM-103, but I think it can be a great mic for the type of vocal you're talking about.

    It's often very good on hard rock but melodic male vocalists. I don't know what it is about it, but it can sometimes get you THAT sound. While this is definitely a try-before-you-buy mic, it would be a shame to overlook it.
