I have been doing voice overs for about a year now and have bought a bunch of mid priced large condenser mics. I have been using a CAD E100S which is considered by VO guys as decent. I also have a sterling ST51, AKG Perception 420, Shure SM27 and a Sennheiser MK4. These mics all have their strengths and I get compliments on my sound on a regular basis with the CAD and Sennheiser. Enter the Neumann tl103. This mic has a great reputation and seems to considered a bench mark for pro home studio VO. AMS has a twelve payment plan on these and I jump on it with hopes it will take my sound to the next level. In my studio it sounds no better and in some cases not as strong as my other mics. My question to you is, would you sell off all of the other mics that sound as good to pay for one mic that will be considered more professional to potential clients? My other option is to thin the heard, buy some other gear and let my sound quality do the talking in hopes that not all potential clients are gear snobs. Pro tools vs Garage band. Avalon vs Berhinger. Any opinions would be helpful. Thanks.
No announcement yet.
OT, One respected mic vs many good mics?
