    Hey there,

    I'm replacing my current mic an AKG D5, because I would like a condenser mic.

    Just want some advice?

    Two mics I've looked at and liked are the MXL 900 and the Audio Technica AT2035.

    I have a budget of £150

    Any suggestions?

    My latest mic purchase is the RODE NT1-A and I love it, gives alot of high end and is very very quiet.

    I've also heard good things about the Bluebird

    ...but I don't think you can go wrong w/ the Blue THX which is USB. Simple to use and almost certainly is good enough for an online radio presentation (which is going to be compressed anyways.

    I personally have the MXL 990 and am MORE than happy with it. If you haven't already, look on musicians friend, they have fantastic prices, and quick shipping. I bought mine to record a podcast with a friend of mine, however we both got entirely too busy with finals, and then he moved out of town, so that project was unfortunately abandoned after only a few episodes. The MXL mic's are great for radio shows/podcasting. They replicate sound amazingly well, especially for the price. and being a condenser mic, they have a little bit of a richer sound to them. HIGHLY recommend the MXL.
