Next item: Find something that won't break the bank for snare drums.  Getting sick of the same old 57 sound!  (May try one of the 25's there tomorrow.)




Have you tried a condenser on snare yet, maybe something you already have?

For years I had an Oktava MK219 which I never liked & never used. Eventually I cut the grill off, tried it on snare & now it's one of my favourite snare mics. Oktava MC012 isn't too bad either.

I have at times been absolutely thrilled with a KSM32 on snare.  Sennheiser MD431 can also be brilliant.  I have really come to think of a snare as a vocal in terms of mic choice.

Tom, I was not familiar with the 431 so I did a quick search.

I was turned on to the 431 by Dave Mattacks who had just returned from tracking a Mary Chapin Carpenter record with GM.
