I've been thinking about recording short clips of how I'm progressing (or not) playing my alto, so I just had a go using the laptop built-in mic with very low expectations but still it was worse than I imagined. So does anyone know of a USB mic that does a decent job of recording sax that cost around £50?

Try Samson Q1U around £38 quid or CO1U around £64. Personally use Q1U bought a while back before i got Zoom H2N.

How did you get along with the Q1U, did you get the Zoom for the convenience or did you find the sound quality from the Q1U lacking?

Got on fine with Q1U works well with free audacity software Nero wave editor, The stand that came with it was a very useable heavy table top base one complete with a pop shield never used, may have changed now? I got the Zoom to take to gigs workshops and performances at the local club (always get permission from the artist, they always seem to appreciate a copy file, I've only ever had one artist refuse to allow)

After quite a bit of looking through tests and reviews I've decided to go with the Samson Go Mic: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001R76D42 . I like the small size and the clip as it'll work well with the laptop I'm going to use to record with. Came across this demo recorded with the Go Mic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmNZOfCK6kY . I'm sure I'll sound as good as that just by using the Go Mic! :thumb: Thanks for pointing me in the right direction on my search.
