You haven't answered an important question. How are you going to use the mic
.. in other words what are you hooking the mic up to .. do you have a mixer
and something to record with .. or, at this point anyway, just recording
directly into your computer?
Whatever mic you choose . you will need some sort of mic stand ... and .. I
strongly suggest getting a "pop filter"
If you have a mixer I would suggest a good dynamic mic .. such as the Shure
SM-58 (available most anywhere for about $100) Dynamic mics have the
advantage of being less sensitive to "room noises" .. such as cars driving
by, or the 'fridge in the next room kicking on, or a fan.
