Hey!

I've been looking around for a good condenser microphone around $100 - $300.

Figured I get some feedback from some of you that may have one already.

I'm looking for a microphone that will pretty much record everything. Vocals, percussion, foley work, and random sounds around the house. I don't know if that's even possible to have a mic that's good at all that, but something that's close. Or I could buy two mics. One for vocals and one for foley type work.

Would it be beneficial to get something like the: Blue Spark, Rode NT1a, Audio-Technica AT2050, or sE Electronics X1 for more vocal work and then later go ahead and get something like the Avantone Audio CK-1, Audio-Technica 2022, or Rode NTG-1 for more of the foley type work?

Some advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,

- Ezra Scott -
