    I know I was on here recently, asking members to ID a mic for me. That mic turned out to be a Shure SM7b, but those out outside of my financial range. I think I got a pretty good deal in GC's used gear section on an MXL 990/991 set for just under $50. Usually, you can find the 990 for around that price (if you look hard enough), but I haven't seen that price on the set - so I pulled the trigger. They arrived today in great shape. Awesome!

    Great score! I have no doubt you will get some great recordings with that pair.

    I do have a Shure SM7b, and I love it, but I also use my MXL condensers almost as much. They're surprisingly good mics.
