Default Shure Beta 98D Microphones on toms?

Hi, I'm thinking of getting a pair for tom use.

Has anyone here used them and have any feedback?

Thanks

Stoney

The 98s are great, I've been using them live for maybe 10 years. We originally had one on the snare as well, and went back to a 57. FYI we use the 91 in the kick, and it's also great.

Thanks Bermuda.

I'm sold!

I'm using a D112 at the moment for the kick although heard lots of positive things about the 91. I'll have to save my pennies up I think.

52 build in kick (combined with SubKick)
56 on gong drum (combined with SubKick build-in)
57 for snare top
57 build-in for snare bottom
98 on toms and aux snares
81 on OH's, ride and HH's

This is my fav. set-up.

Sounds good!

I'll be getting the 98's for toms, and 57 for snare. Just got a factory matched pair of Oktava 012's for overheads from a friend straight from the factory in Russia. (not tried them out yet but read good reviews about them, especially for the price). I have a D112 which I've had for yonks. That'll get me started.

I'll be looking at getting an SM81 for the hats at some point...

I use the 81 on hats and for underheads (overheads are so 1975...)

I suspect musiqman also meant the 81 (not 91) for the cymbals...
