I put up a similar thread about a week ago about $125 ldc, but have decided to consider spending the additional $100.
Is there a concensus on the best $250 LDC as an upgrade primarily for vocals?, but generally also, based on what I do and already have. I think a LDC is the next obvious thing I need.
I record myself: drums, guitar, bass, acoustic guitar, mandoline
Type: acoustic rock such as REM, Train, Counting Crows, Tom Petty, U2
I have: 2 sm57
4 various other cheap but very workable dynamic mics
2 Shure b4.1 SDC pencil
Any advice? Between AT4040, Studio Project C1 and Rode NT1-A?
And, what is the difference in a Rode NT1 and the NT1A?
I can get:
used NT1A on ebay for about $175 or new with accessaries for $229/free shipping
new AT4040 with access/free shipping $246
new Studio Projects C1 $199/free shipping
thank again for all
