"I have an [AKG C414 TLII](http://equipboard.com/items/akg-c414-tlii) for vocals and acoustic guitar, a couple of Royer R121s and some [Shure SM57](http://equipboard.com/items/shure-sm57-instrument-vocal-mic) and [58s](http://equipboard.com/items/shure-sm58-vocal-microphone) for guitars, and that's it." - [Ken Lawrence](http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/jul13/articles/it-0713.htm).more
"The band tours nearly 300 days a year so to keep things running as efficient as possible Barakat uses a Kemper Profiler so he can quickly access all the band’s recorded tones and even shared settings given to him by Mark Hoppus of Blink 182. For his clean tone he’s using an AC30 model that’s miked with a Royer R121 ribbon microphone and for the more aggressive stuff the core tone is sampling from Barakat’s Budda Superdrive 30."more
"In general I used both Shure SM57 and Royer R-121 ribbon mics, a few inches back, just off the center of the cone, give or take an inch or two depending on the part. When you back the mics off a bit, it can help a part sit in a track better, especially if there are more that two guitar parts."more
