Hey, just like the title says, I'm looking for your guys' advice on what the best mic for vocals for $250 or under would be. I'll be recording normal singing, "screaming"/"growling"/whatever you want to call it, and acoustic guitars.


Hope you can help me out, thanks!

I use a Shure Beta 58a. Works great. I tend to blast my music over my monitors when I record vocals, it rejects background noise very well. I'd definitely recommend it. I believe it's around $150 new.

A Blue Bluebird mic is around that price range and sounds fantastic.

Used Audio Technica AT4040 and a used Oktava MK012 or Rode NT5.

The 4040 will be great for vocals, and the SDCs will be great in conjunction with it on an acoustic.


Another option is a used Shure SM7b, if you're focusing more on screaming than the other 2. It won't be great on acoustics, but it can sound very nice for singing on some people. Also works great on micing guitar amps.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

SM7 is great for loud vocals and guitars but like Matrix said it isn't great for acoustics. I'd say overall, just buy both the NT1A and the SM7 when you can get the cash and you'll have a great mic locker. If you can't afford either of those, even a cheap AT2035 and a SM57 would be great and will put you at about 200 total.

Is the Rode the mic you used for the songs on your profile? They sound great!

Yeah, and tbh, those are 1.5+ years old and my tracking and mixing have improved since then
