Artists use this
The best starting mic you can buy and it comes with a hard plastic case. Sounds decent on everything but with a little processing can sound amazing. Used to use it as a vocal mic, it is now my kick out mic. I don't see myself replacing it anytime soon.
Another piece of studio equipment. I bought this microphone not too long ago and I use it for Vocals mainly but I also use it for an overhead microphone on the drums and I've used it when experimenting with mic techniques on guitar. It is an amazing condenser microphone, whatever you record with it, always sounds clear and perfect. When I record vocals the quality is mind blowing and the quality when recording overheads is amazing too, it has a clear, professional sound and gets the best out of your voice and the drums. You could use it for other stuff but I personally use it for mainly Vocals and Drum Overheads
