Hey Dave, how do you like the nt2a? How much does it run for, and what would
you say it's good/best for?
 
THX, D!J!X!

Hi phil, Would be tempted to but already have the C1 and NT2A. A C3 might be
next choice though as it will do everything I want.

Dave, if you want a Studio Projects mic with multiple patterns, checkout the
Studio Projects C3.  Same feature set as the C1 however, it has multiple
patterns.

Steve, Yeah, thats what i get when flying through these emails and didn't
hear the 87 properly. I bet the old fasioned look for that one mic does go
over quite well for atmosphere and that kind of thing definitely makes a
difference. think i'd like to check out that show myself. Yes, you'll like
the sound of the C1, i'm quite sure. I do love the nt2A for having the three
paterns thouogh. handy when having a few people playing precussion, and can
have that figure eight patern going and makes for a cool sound. If i had to
choose one or the other though, think i would have to pick the c1 just
because it sounds so extremely good on acoustic guitar and vocals. To have
both is great and wanted a couple really decent mics and not a bunch of cash
to blow. At this point, i'm not making money off of the studio and more for
a creative outlet than a job so hard to justify paying thousands for one
mic. Basically, two good mics for under $500 is pretty good i think. Would
love to check out your music. Where are you located. Am near Orlando, Fl.

Hi Dave,
 
You've sold me on the C1, as for phantom power, I'm used to using phantom
power as the Shure Beta 87A is a Condenser microphone.
I'm also using a Shure SH55 classic microphone, This has the casing of a
1950's microphone but inside is a Shure Beta 58 head, the idea is good but
the sound is not anything special. 
I use it on my Jerry Lee Lewis shows because it has that 1950's  retro look.

hi Steve, The 57 and 58 mic's are great for live use but you won't believe
difference with either the nt2A or the Studio project microphones. i have
the C1 and people just can't believe its sound for the price. of course you
can blow hundreds and hundreds of dollars for certain mics but really
believe the c1 is best out there for the price. Think around $240 or so and
that is a great price for high quality mic with bass rolloffs and padding as
well which really comes in handy. If you check the reviews out there, think
they will show that I'm not alone. The Shure mics can handle some basic
recording but when you want to get a foot away from mic, they don't hang
with the true recording mics. Can't beat 57 for being durable but just don't
have the definition and subtleties of a good recording mic. You won't be
sorry. most all decent recording mics do require fantom power however so
something to know in advance. Dave

Hi Dave,
 
Thanks for the info about Rode microphones, and thanks for mentioning Studio
Project microphones.
Which of the Studio project microphones do you have?
 
I'm using a Shure Beta 87A for my live Shows, it suits my voice well, I just
think I need something a little more studio dedicated for recording.

hi Steve, i really like my NT2A as is good for many uses, and very good for
vocals. Use mine on acoustic guitar, precussion, and even used it on guitar
amp. The NT1A works very well too but NT2A has choice of different paterns
which can be handy. To be honest, think you may want to check out the Studio
Project microphones as well. Used my NT2A exclusively til I bought one of
theirs. Have had many different people use it and all have been amazed and
had to go out and buy one of their own. You can't go wrong with either one
but since I got the Studio Project mic have pretty much just stuck with it
and the NT2A has been in its case for a while. Dave

Hi All,
 
I'm aware that quite a few of the people who post on this forum use Rode
microphones for studio projects.
 
I'd never heard of them until I read about them on this forum, I've since
taken a look at the reviews about Rode on the net, I'm very impressed with
what I read. 
 
I just wondered, which one of the rode studio microphones would you
recommend as the best one for lead vocals and voice-over recordings?
