What Was Your Most Satisfying Mic Purchase?

About 6 weeks ago, I picked up 2 mics that I feel are the best bang for the buck these days. I got a Bluebird and an SM7B, about $250 and $350 respectively. The Bluebird is probably the best value in a microphone I've ever seen. What is your experience?

I really want an SM7b...perfect for home recording in less than stellar spaces. It's hard to get a bad sound out of that mic. Haven't tried a Bluebird yet, but they're certainly well regarded...and extremely cool designs from that company. I bought an LDC from Gauge, which is a very good mic for around $150, then Michael Joly from oktavamod.com modded it for me as the result of winning a haiku contest--yes--which brought it closer to the realm of a Neumann U47...definitely NOT of that quality, but closer than expected, and also improved enough to compete nicely with $1000 mics now.

Of course, what we do with the damned things is another story...

Best bang for the buck in my mind is still the noble SM-57 or SM-58.

AKG C 1000 S

The best $280 I've ever spent. Have had two of them for years and they are workhorses. Great for overheads, hi-hat, percussions, acoustic guitar, and vocals! Nicely detailed hi-freq response.

Years later bought a Rode NTK Tube mic for $500 specifically for vocals, and found that the AKGs sound just as good.

Paid 400 bucks for a groove tubes GT67. If you have a weak voice, this mic is for you.

I'm sure there are 400 other mics that are just as good though
