shure KSM 9
I fell in love with Shure entirely after hearing this mic. It actually ADDS to your voice. It makes it warmer, breathier, and I really don't like to perform without it. I use this exclusively live.
I record all of my music with one of these. My favorite studio mic. Even without EQing anything, you get incredible tone, without breaking the bank. These are a no-brainer. Hard to beat, even comparing them next to microphones 10x the price.
