Im thinking that i want a multi track recorder, and at first i was thinking the boss br-600. But now im thinking this.
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Tascam-DP02CF-Digital-Portastudio?sku=241796
Would that be a good multi track recorder?

And then buying this as my mics.

The tascam has built in phantom power so using a condenser mic wouldnt be a problem right?

Any other suggestions?

Ive not seen or used that Tascam yet and it looks new but boy it has a tiny screen...

Those 990/991 sets are nice mics, just be sure your MTR has phantom power on board...

some more info for your MTRs:

Thanks moody, id knew youd be the first to reply.

It says that tascam has the onboard phantom power, thats why i want it more than the boss.

Thanks for the info.

Yoou shouldn't get the MXL package unless you'll only be doing acoustic guitar and vocals. They're great mics, but because they're condensors, they distort too easily, so you can't really record guitar or bass amps with them. If you're going to be micing an amp, drums, sax, screaming, etc., you should go for a shure SM57 or 58 instead. Unlike the MXL 990/991, they sound great on anything.

I will be doing a lot of acoustic stuff, but also a lot of electric stuff, its a mix, but i dont play really anything to distorted, not metal. I have a blues jr. if that helps any..
