Cory, I second the vote for the Zoom H2 as pseudosafari suggested. I as well as others on the forum have had good success with it . You can use the built in microphones or connectexternal microphones to it. The H4 is a step up fromthe H2 but more expensive. Zoom also makes an H1 which is more affordable but I don’t have any experience with it. You will find other brands and models are very suitable, perhaps others will chime in here with their suggestions. Just as a suggestion you might check BHphoto (good source for equipment with reasonable prices) for their selection of recorders, mics etc. and get a feel for what is available, and then come back here for comments on the products you are considering. Hope this helps.
