My mom just asked what I would like for gifts. I decided I'd like a little upgrade to the studio in addition to some other stuff. Has anyone had any experience with the MXL mics? I was looking and found some good package deals with the 990 and the 3000. I would like to add a condenser vocal mic to the collection. I already know about the SM57/58 debate, I just want some feedback on other options. Cheers, Richard Edit: Oh yeah, I'd like to keep the budget under or around $150-200 so I can also give her ideas of other non-music related stuff.
