    budget?
    I play piano, guitar, drums, and trombone. I'm a regular one man band. Ask me something about computers, 90% of the time I'll have the answer.

    Behringer garbage without a long explanation get a MACKIE mixer DFX12 $199 or something more rock solid then behringer

    Mics, cop the Rode NT1 for $199
    sounds like Mics in the thousands category

    Yeah if its for recording go for a codenser mic like the rode nt1 or nt1000 (the budget priced audio technica,s aren,t bad on acoustic guitars but they can sound kind of brittle and don,t compare to the rodes in the same price category on vox)

    Sm 58,s are good mics but better suited to live work or more experimental recording applications like multiple micing and such.

    I definately agree that a budget mackie desk is a better buy than a behringer;i used a mackie desk on the road in my home studio for years and it always sounded crisp and clean.

    You know that the Mackie mixers are now also made in China??? Same as Behringer, and probably at the same factory! or at the least, just down the road.

    I really think there's a slim difference between a budget Behringer mixer and a budget Mackie mixer. They are both low cost mixers, made from cheap materials, parts, and electronics. The Mackie pre amps, if you buy the VLZ series, maybe slightly better.

    Just my thoughts.....

    Good luck!
