most probably some cheap imitations (like there mixers).

My band-leader owns a Tube-Mic (a Fame from musicstore) which was cheap (ie=

it for vocals and guitar. Both for acoustic guitar and for electric-guitar,=

I wouldn't go for cheap condensors (<100=80 per part).

If you want to use your mic(s) on stage too, I would go for Shure SM58 or e=

better Shure Beta58 (or 57 for instruments-only). The later one is also=20
