There's a lot of folks like ribbon mics on AG. But it's hard to find a good cheap ribbon. There's even people swear by the SM57

But if you know that a budget mic has got a hyped top-end and tends to be a bit scatchy, you're ready to knock that down with eq - if it needs it.

The best trick is to make sure you do refer to your reference track(s). If you like a sound, put the tune in a track on your session. You mute it obv, but keep having a listen to it from time to time - just use the solo button.
