Default SE Electronics SE1000A Studio Condenser Microphone

What are your opinions on the SE Electronics SE1000A Studio Condenser Microphone? Are there any other Mics around the 100 mark that you would suggest?

It would be mainly used for female vocals.

I dont like it (sorry Mitch if you are reading this ). Rode NT1a or Samson C1 are the most useable condensers at this price point but to be frank if you have a decent pre the trusty SM57 and a pop shield may do an even better job!

I also got the SE2200a which I bought for 140 at DV a couple of years ago. Really imressive for the money!

I have a NT1a since the end of last summer but never even plugged it in until this morning (coincidence?). Anyway I plugged the baby into my new Digi 003 and recorded a bit in Logic - I was doing an audio recording lesson in the DAW. Impressive sound, I must say. It's quite a good mic!

The SE2200a is very, very nice on some sources, but female vox isn't one of 'em in my experience! YMMV of course...

Yeah I find them great for capturing the sound of long nails being scraped down blackboards (only joking but I couldnt resist)
