Inexpensive Nady SP-1 for podcasting

Nady SP-1 mic stand and XLR cable

The Nady SP-1 dynamic mic is a great starting or add-on mic for any podcaster with mixer. The mic has decent sound, on/off switch, and easily fits in a podcaster's tight budget.

You can get the Nady Starpower-1 mic by itself for a really low price:

For our studio, we bought this 3-pack of Behringer microphones, so it’s a little more than the kit price, but it comes with 3 mics, so it’s about the same individually.

I’m really happy with my Nady mic. I want to update most of my other gear, but the mic is perfectly fine as is.

Purchased two of these after mistakenly buying a couple of condenser mics and not being able to figure out why they were so stinking sensitive. Thanks for the recommendation.

Thinking about doing this kit and a behringer 802 for about $50. I understand that I may have to upgrade mixers later, but do you think this is an ok start? Trying to keep a budget, but I did a podcast for a wile with a Logitech headset and a snowball, and I don’t want to go that route again when I get back into it.

Daniel, the link that you have here for the kit isn’t to the Sp-1. It is to the MSC-3 kit. They are close to similar, but the SP-1 has a higher quality kit. I have bought both.
