    I fully agree with the SM7 & 414 choices.

    I've some tips for budget-friendly options if you're after a selection
    of decent tools (second-hand). Hopefully this'll be useful & save someone
    hours of research 🙂

    I use an Equitek E100 as my '414 equivalent'. It's one of the original ones -
    I've not tried the reissues.

    If I need an 'SM7-ish' vibe, I put a foam wind-shield on my SM57.

    The Violet Designs Black Knight is great for backing vocals and is built like
    Titanium Toilet.
