Finally decided on buying my first condensor mic after 10 months on the course and decided to buy Rode nt1a bundle, got it a really good price in the uk £135. In my opinion it's great value comes with pop shield, quality xlr cable and shock mount. This is a large diaphram condensor mic and only just set it up, noticed it replicates my voice quite accurately and having the convenience of being able to sing further away from the mic was useful compared to my dynamic mic.
It's a very sensative mic so may need to look at making an acoustic insulated booth of some sort though @doc_ramadani
has the same mic and he mentioned it was a little harsh, reckon that was down to trebel boost circuitry and that can be adjusted by turning the mic offset reduces top end a little.
Well looking forward to experimenting with my new purchase, it certainly feels a decent quality build and with a 10 year warranty pretty good.
