    well, considering not all of those mics will work well on every voice, my pick would be the ksm32. i've recorded on that, the spc1, the ksm27 (own it), the nt1a, and the akgc3000b.

    I've used the NT1a and KSM32, and NT1a sucked complete balls for my voice type, but the KSM32 is the shit, great mic if used properly. As for the other mics....no clue

    Out of them mics, go with either the AT4050 or the Shure KSM32. Both great mics, it just so happened that I'm getting both of them so you're talking to someone that has used the mics before. It all depends on what you're trying to do with the mics.

    You shouldn't have listed the KSM27 if you have the KSM32 on there.

    AT4050 is semi transparent, and colored.
    Shure is transparent.

    Transparent as in it adds nothing to your voice, no warmth, no coloration, no darkness, nothing.
    Whatever your pre adds, is the sound you'll get.
    The reason why that works for so many voice is, because you can slap the mic on any pre you like, and eventually you'll get the sound you want for each artist.
    While it's not a magic mic, it is versitile.
