I don’t have too many mics as I only use them for my personal use – no band recording or else.
I got one SM58, one SM57, one Rode NT1, one Sony ECM-MS907 and several other consumer mics.

The Sony is very good, I do the same use as Sillymonkey : outdoor recording for foleys and my band gigs. Put on the 120° position – because you can set the spread of the stereo – my band sounds very good, very natural. I bought mine at 120 € ($150) new. You can also use it with a camcorder and wow, this sounds much better than the crappy I-get-the-motor-hum-and-it-overcompresses-the-sound built-in mic.
And the battery consumption is a dream : I got it for a year, do 2 hours of recording every 2 weeks and I don’t remember having reloaded the battery. :o

Josh, wow. THIS is a nice offer. I check my bank account and I write you a Santa Claus letter :lol:
You’ve put a light in my eye and I won’t browse Zzounds with tears…

I went to Radio Shack and bought a tie microphone or lavilier microphone. It is what people use on tv. It has a 6 foot cable and comes with one hearing aid type of battery. It only costs 29.99. I let a few legos drop from about 2 inches and the sound came out beautiful. I didn’t know how to link it in the fourms or I would have.
Very small but has great pickup.

Let’s see… I’m not very good at microphones, so I ask for the help of you all.

I have some €40,- to spend for a microphone, and my microphone should be well for (at least) recording voices without background sounds.
Anybody with a good suggestion?

here’s the mic I gave as a prize for HAT … id/271149/

It comes with a cable that can be plugged into soundcards, which is what I assume you’d be doing with it.

It’s lying on my desk. Being back home, I should really give it a try now. Expect a test soonish!
