    Another good one is the BLUE Bluebird. Large condenser that also is great for vocals, but a little lower on handling SPLs (138dB). This one's getting rave reviews. Here's part of what Sweetwater had to say about it: "By using discrete Class A circuitry, the Bluebird offers you high-output and a frequency response that flatters most sound sources, from vocals to acoustic and electric instruments. Its detailed midrange makes most vocals stand out in the mix, and brings out the warmer qualities in brass and higher stringed instruments, while its rich low end and clear presence is excellent for acoustic guitars, close-miked percussion, and amplifiers. And at its affordable price, you can easily pick up a pair of Bluebirds to capture drum overheads and acoustic pianos in their full splendor." ..... $300.

    This is probably the one I'll end up with. It has a specially designed shock mount called the "Bird Nest" and a pop filter called the "Bird Cage" (seriously, BLUE has a sense of humor).:-)

    I use M-Audio interfaces, Shure mics / or run directly out of the board, and Cubase for recording software.
