Alright, I am a frustrated singer and I guess my daughter is also getting that from me. My sister even laughed at her whenever she sings because she really does not have a nice voice. And I must admit that no matter how I denied it, so aside from learning guitar I also want to enrol her in a voice lesson. Or maybe to lower the cost, we will just buy the exciting mxl 990 instead, a condenser microphone that has shock mount. The shock mount has the silky sweet high end. Ya know, when you do digital and analog recording, it would create professional sounds. What do you think; would we stick for a voice lesson or just purchase this kind of microphone?
