Does Massdrop do microphones?

more_vert
I am currently in the market for a studio mic around 50$ and was wondering before I buy a Samson meteor if Massdrop does microphone drops as that would greatly help me in my search. Any help would be appreciated as i am also open to suggestions if there are other microphones i should look at for my price range

Microphones do show up from time to time. Not sure I've seen a Samson Meteor on here, but CAD mics show up a fair bit.
The $50 price tag is going to limit your choices. If you're looking at USB mics like the Samson Meteor, others I'd suggest taking a look at include the Audio Technica AT2020 USB (about $100 new or $70 used), the Rode NT USB (about $160 new, not sure about used), and of course the offerings from Blue (range from around $50 to $150, depending).
All that aside, can I ask what you're planning to use the microphone for? Different mics are really suited for different purposes, and even inside the range of vocal mics, different mics will flatter different voices. It's best if you have the chance to try out a range of microphones in your price range to see which one works best for you and what you want to do with it.
On the off chance you're looking for a voice mic and you're close to a baritone, Mike Delgaudio did a nice comparison between the Samson Meteor and the Blue Yeti: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1006yW1jkKk It'll at least let you hear what the two sound like on HIS voice. For what it's worth, I think Mike has tested the AT2020 USB and may have tested the Rode NT USB. Provided your voice is reasonably close to his, his Youtube channel is a good resource.

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
