    Hi, I'm new here and to recording. I'm looking for a sub $100 LDP Condenser mic from Musician's Friend (as not all companies will ship to me, and I know they will; I have an APO AE address).
    I'd be using it for vocals mainly as I already have a Shure SM57 for instruments and a Sennheiser e902 for bass.

    Also, what should I look for in mics?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Sorry - I don't exactly follow. What's an LDP?

    For less than $100...the only mic I would ever recommend for under $100 for vocals would be a Shure 57 or 58.

    LDP: Large Diaphragm

    I have the SM57, so I guess I'll stick with that as everybody is telling me the SM57. Thanks.

    Alright. Sorry about the LDP, that's the way I saw it on a few sites while reading up on mics.
