Hi Hat Mic

Im looking for a new hi hat mic for live club gigs. What are you using on your gig??

Looking at Shure and Audix.

Thanks!

For live club gigs I'd probably keep is tough and simple and go with an SM57. Maybe not the greatest top end response, but good rejection of off-axis sounds and can be used as a billy club if things get rough.

I prefer AKG 460s but a Shure SM81, AKG 451or a Shure KSM 141 are all great sounding hi hat microphones without too much harshness or edginess. There is also one Audio Technica condenser microphone that I like use that sounds great on hi hats, it's model number is the ATM33, It's in the shock mount above the hi hats.
