When I had one of those, I thought it made a great floor tom mic, but sounded kinda' thin on the bass drum.

I certainly do. Nicely transparent, good off axis rejection, compact, robust. For the money, they're easily good enough for everything other than the very highest end systems, & of course by then, it's someone else's issue, not yours. I drive most of the upper kit sound with a pair of NT5's for the same reason. Not spectacular, but bombproof.My workhorse mics are the EV PL series. They don't cost a bunch, are very solid performers for the price, can take abuse, and have a very usable form factor. IIRC, Andy also uses them for live work.
