    Hi there, as part of my studio project, I have a 1000$ to spend on mics. I need one very good condenser with lots of thickness and harmonics on a wide range, which I will need your advice. the other two will probably be a SM-57, and another acoustic guitar/piano/amplifier condenser, such as the sure's or the Rhodes. have you got any suggestions for me?

    Thanks a lot

    Nimrod, if you play your cards right, you can find one good condenser for both vocals AND instruments, buy the 57 for what you need it for, and wind up with a better mic.

    I don't seek out mics with "thickness", so I can't make a recommendation for you.

    I've used the AT with great success, and really didn't like the AKG, I found it quite Harsh sounding, the AT's frequency response is much closer to a "high end" condenser. But why sell yourself short, you have much higher quality mics within your budget such as a Neumann TLM-103 or an AKG414TL both would be an upgrade from the other options. and you might still have enough left for a small diaphragm condenser and an SM57.
