Looking for a cheap, side-address, large-diaphragm, cardiod condenser
mic for vocals.  Wondering if CDM readers/authors might have some
advice.  Currently considering…

Audio Technica AT3035
Blue 8-Ball
Rode NT1-A
Studio Projects C1

Audio Technica AT2020
Kel HM-1
Studio Projects B1

…I'm leaning toward the Studio Projects pieces, or perhaps the Kel.

Anyone want to sound in? A number of good choices here. -PK
