I'm looking for a bit of advice on picking up some new mics.
Coming up soon I'll be recording a friend's band, and I'd like to expand my mic collection a litle before hand.
I currently have:
Shure SM81 sdc
Oktava MK-012 sdc
Rode NT1-a ldc
Samson CO-1 ldc (blegh)
MCA SP-1 ldc (never really used, just got it for free from some dude.)
assorted SM57s and 58s
What I am looking at doing is either getting another SM81 or Oktava so that I'll have a matched stereo pair, or getting a pair of Cascade Fatheads, or the Cascade X-15, unless someone has some other recommendations. I'm mainly looking for something versatile, that I can also use hopefully for drum overheads.
My budget is right around the $400 range, but the cheaper I go, the more I'll have left over for a kick mic - a Senheiser e604!
Any help, advice, reviews, etc would be handy and greatly appreciated! Thanks!
