Heres what I'm after:
1. A bass drum mic - Is the AKG D112 the best?
2. A good condenser mic - Ideally one that double up as a drum overhead and also a live instument mic (for acoustic instruments such as banjo/bazouki/mandolin/fiddle)
3. A vocal/ snare mic - COULD AN SM 57 serve both purposes?
I have a budget of £350 which may be able to be stretched slightly
I'm partial to the Electro-Voice RE20 for bass drums (among other things). A good condenser you could use for alot of things would be one of those side-address mics. Studio Projects makes the C1 which is a good solid workhorse, but there's alot of them out there, BLU, for example, makes great mics and CAD....
SM57's rock - you can use those for alot of things.
Question is, what are you plugging them into? That has alot to do with how the microphone behaves more than you know.
