So I'm pretty new and I don't know the first thing about sound, but I think my question (and the answer to it) is pretty basic so I'm shooting my shot:
I bought a baritone ukulele and want to record videos of myself singing and playing at home. Simple, right? My instrument is not (and will not be) hooked up to an amp. When I sing and play at the same time, I notice my instrument is louder than my voice. So....I could be wrong, but I'm assuming just getting a mic and hooking it up to my amp (a Fender Frontman 10g) will solve the problem.
Questions: What kind of microphone is good for this (or home recording in general) that is of high quality that won't break the bank? Should I try to hook up a microphone to my amp? I've done some research and it seems Amazon has their own line mics, and I know that Shure makes good mics.
I'm sure these mics have to connect to something, so if not my amp, what else do I need to buy to connect these mics to? Budget is $50 - $150. I'm so eager and excited to start practicing more and recording at home, so any help towards this would be greatly appreciated.
