Comments about AKG Perception 220 Condenser Microphone:
This mic is one of the better values for users who are not ready to commit to a thousand dollar or so mic (Neumann, etc.), but would like a something better than the SM58 level for vocals. I have used this to record acoustic guitar as well with very nice results.
