I was just wondering whether anyone can recommend any decent (but cheapish) condenser mic. I'm living fairly frugally as a uni student, so I only have about $400 Australian (~US$550, ~150pounds). I'm looking for an multi-purpose thing for guitar, drums and maybe piano, so a large diaphragm would be great to capture a broad range of sounds (especially bass tones).
I've heard rave reviews about the M-Audio Luna
, which is being compared to the vintage greats such as the Neumann et al. It will no doubt be far inferior in reality :rolleyes: (nothing can even approach a Neumann, especially at 150pounds), but the comparison has whet my appetite. Anyone know more about it?
There isn't really a mic forum so this was the closest I could find!
