Hello good people of The Gear Page. I am in the market for LDC and SDC mics for the following applications. I have $1800 for a budget, and have a few options i would like to hear some input on. (My goal is to purchase both a LD and SD, and I will be buying used mics) Main Applications in order of importance are: 1. Drum Overheads 2. Vibraphone (Stereo) 3. Vox (both male and female) 4. Guitars (both acoustic and electric/amp) My set Up: Digi 003 with 4 channels Art MPA Pro pres. I only have about 3 feet between cymbals and ceiling creating the need for a closer than ideal mic placement. Option 1: Pair of Neumann 184's one AKG 414 BXLS Option 2: Pair of AKG 414 BXLS' one Neumann 184 Option 3: Pair of AT 4051's one AKG 414 BXLS one AT 4047 Option 4: Your choice Other mics i've considered: AT 4041, AKG 451, AT 4050. Thanks for your enthusiasm!!!
