Default Good standard mic for a Macbook?

Hi, any suggestions for a good standard mic to plug directly into my Macbook and record drum set practice sessions? Just something that won't distort and that will sound decent on playback. Only really interested in using it to document certain ideas and maybe play with on Garage Band.

Thanks,

Jiva

For simplicities sake, I would go for a USB mic. These have an interface already built-in which means that there's the minimum of fuss. Something like a Rode Podcaster will work relatively well.

If you want to record other than for the sake of reference, you will need a slightly more advanced set up, but the USB mics for just plugging in and playing get a lot of good reviews and appear to work well.

I have a pair of Rode NT5 stereo mics and these work well for reasonable quality stereo recordings. I'm guessing these will be about $300.

My Macbook has a built in mic and I have used it at times. You just have to move it away a bit.
