I've stuck with the rode nt2.Works excellent with acoustics as well. The only downside is try to find an origional nt2 and not the one that rode sells now. Good luck with that though......

My buddy just bought a Neumann U-47 capsule and Neumann transformer and had Mr.Pearlman put it together in his own housing. Cost around $2000 total...unbelievable sound. Here's a link.

IS this mic for you or for anybody that enters your studio? What kind of mic pre are you using? What is your budget?

Start there for better advice...
