    Hello people! ;)
    I am looking for a condenser mic in the price bucket of ¬100 quids. I am not looking for a high-end recording device, I am gonna use it to sample some beatbox or perc sounds and skype calls. Would be great if the price didn't exceed 100 pounds and I could get a stand and foam with it.

    We use the Rode NT series at college - you can pick up an NT1a for around £140 with shockmount and pop-shield. To be honest, you're gonna be hard pushed to find a half decent condenser mic for around £100...

    Also, check out the SE X1 - They've got rave reviews from Future Music magazine and you can get bundles with a shockmount, reflection filter, XLR cable, pop shield and stand for fairly cheap (Depending on where you look and what you want in the bundle) - probably gonna grab one of these myself at some point!
