i have a few brands but i am not sure what is the best.
preferably on amazon? lol but pls let me know if there are decent website selling good stuff
There's really no 'best'. Any mic on the day will give a subjectively 'better' result than any other. I've recorded vocals and saxes with just about every mic I own at one time or another. What's your budget?

Perfect for Sax and also great vor vocals (it was the No.1 choice, I think, before the SM58 came along).

Yes, several times - it's very interesting and goes back to the Neumann year dot (1928).

But it's best to give them a ring first to let them know when you wanty to come - main number is:- 00-49-36649-88226.
