Challenge: Budget recording equipment
I do a weekly radio show for my college campus and we have enough mics cables and mic stands for the regular hosts but I'm looking for some deals on a mic, an xlr cable and a mic stand for our guests. It doesn't have to be top quality, just good enough so we can hear the guest and so it would crap out on us anytime soon.
I went looking on musicians friend and could get a mic for about $15, a stand(without mic clip) for about $10, and a cord for about $10 - $15. ( I also had to add in a mic clip for about $6.
With shipping it came to about $60 so I'm looking to shoot under this mark for the whole package.
