4 Track Mag has put together a small list of mics that can get you started with recording vocals. These are some really great microphones for the money. I have a blue myself, and they’re awesome!
Hands down this is just a great mic to own. It sounds awesome on whispery, intimate vocal lines as well as other instruments. Pick one up for recording vocals and you’ll find yourself micing guitar and drums with it as well.
Blue Bluebird Large Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser
This is truly a great mic and it’s a steal for the price. It’s actually shocking that a microphone of this quality can be purchased for under $300. The Bluebird is built with a Class-A discrete amplifier circuit and the clarity can be heard in recordings. If you’re looking for a mic that will add a bit of character without sacrificing clarity to your vocal recordings, this is it.
