I'm looking for a LDC mostly for acoustic guitar and vocals. $300 is a do-able price. There are a ton of LDCs in this range, the Rode NT-1 and NT-1A are obvious choices, but there are many others. There's also the Shure SM7B, which while not a condenser is functionally similar: wide, flat response for vocal and acoustic instruments. As I got farther down the rabbit hole, I realized that there are a couple of Shure LDCs that are not mentioned often, but the few reviews I saw were quite good. A $500 KSM32 would be nice, but I'd probably settle on the $300 SM27. Is anybody using a Shure LDC, and how do you like it? Why are they so infrequently mentioned compared to the competition.
