Need mic suggestion help please


Looking for a good vocal mic for male and female. R& B, gospel and jazz vocals. The room is treated and the front end is a GR pre into an apollo quad out to a benchmark dac. Currently hav a Akg 414, rode nt2. Looking for a tube. Currently looking at Tlm 49 or Tlm 103. 16 to 1700 is my budget. Open to all suggestions. Thx

Mojave MA-200 or Bock 195. The Bock is solid state, but you would never know it. Whether or not something has a tube in it or not is an unreliable indicator of how it will actually sound. By the way, both Neumanns you are looking at are solid state, and the Mojave and the Bock will be warmer-sounding than either, but still with a strong top end.
I don't know a lot about the TLM 49, but I do know that either one beats up on the TLM 103 pretty good.

I'll second Michael's suggestion on the MA200, I own one and it is just an incredible mic.:)

Though i have not bought any microphone till now. But still as far as i know sennheiser mikes are much better.
It's been used by many musicians.
You can try with sennheiser mike.
