I dig the cheap russian mics, like Oktava. Guitard Center still sells em, for around 100 bones. I have a 319, but am in search of a 219. Lots of records you listen to have used these mics, especially if Jim Diamond recorded em. Cheap, and not too much range (to me, this makes them \\\'safer\\\' so you cant fuck shit up too much). They even have a shelf and rolloff to \\\'dial em in\\\'.
