This mic is all you really need to get started.
At around $99 this mic is hands down the best bang for your buck that I’ve used. Touting both XLR/USB outputs, this is a great starter mic. Just plug it into your computer and you’re ready to record.
The stand on this mic is flimsy, so you’ll want an upgrade immediately.
The best little plug-and-play mic on the market.
A step up at $269, but with the portability, XLR/USB combo, and unparalleled sound, you won’t regret the investment.
The sweetest, velvetiest mic you can buy for under $500. Selling for $399, you’re going to love the way you sound. It’s XLR only, so this one doesn’t plug directly into your computer, you’ll need the Rodecaster Pro to power this beast (see below.)
