My "Go To Mic".
I must have no less than 10 of these. I even use it on snare with a beta 56 (tighter patters w-1k more added on the freq response). That is all I ever need, but you can add a snare bottom of that is your thing. I have never had a drummer hit one. I have even used 120 mic, an entire kit. It came out sweet. Loved it.
But aside from the obvious. My technique is for a guitar cab is: a 57 on the speaker, a 414 a few inches off (another 414 on the back if it is open back cab, and a royer ribbin (one of those $400 ribbons is cool too) a couple of feet off. My trick, is a kick mic, usually a D112 used exactly as the 57 is. I bring the 57 & D112 (type) to unison, sun them, then sum the two room based mics on a second track. I have never needed "more than this". If I have needed more, I knew before hand and used a different mic-ing approach.
This technique works very well with 2 cans facing 180 degrees apart, mic then the same way.
Guitarists are used to stereo tones at home, but want their "unicorn tone" in the studio. I have found this is the shortest distance between two points.
The best mic ever!
It took me a long time to save up for this mic, but it was well worth it! listening to all sorts of tests and shootouts...it just wasn't worth it for me to go with anything else when I KNOW I would have gotten a professional sound out of this thing. Months later, and an awesome $700 deal on Amazon, I finally got it...and I love it! I've only used it on vocals at the moment, but I've gotten nothing but praise from everyone. It's full, transparent and just sounds fantastic!
You really can't do better than this! I know it's super-pricey, but it's well-worth the price tag!
