Reasonably priced condenser microphone for vocals


    I know nothing about microphones but I do know that I need a good condenser microphone if I'm going to record vocals.

    Do I need phantom power?

    Any help you an give me in finding the above is appreciated. Can't find anything on hotukdeals.

    Thank you


    Sure Beta 58a, cant go wrong

    Thanks but that's not a condenser mic. It's probably ok to use for vocals but I have an SM58 already. I'd use the SM58 but I'm told condenser mics are a lot better.

    Beta 58a is used by most leading vocalists, its 10x better than an SM58 which is average.

    Thanks for the tip, I would prefer a condenser microphone still to be honest. I don't think dynamic mics come close to them.

    Don't get me wrong though a dynamic microphone may be ok for live performances but I'm not sure I'd want to use one for vocals in a studio.


    Check out Rode nt1, great for guitar's, vocal's & a lot more.

    try ebay!

    Record vocals perfect but you need phantom power!!!
