Nadine is awesome.  Such pleasure to deal with.  They make a really phenomenal product and I can't say enough good things about the folks at Korby.

Good story.

Now back to the topic.

What are the half dozen or so mics that pretty much cover the vocal gammut?

Who knows... I'd say an SM-7; an AEA R-84; a Soundelux U-195; a Horch RM2J; a Gefell UM-900 and maybe a Coles 4040... or any of a hundred other microphones.

Each voice is going to couple with one mic better than any other... and that coupling can [and will] change on a song by song, arrangement by arrangement basis... there are times when the tool I might intellectually think is the last thing that might work is the best tool in practice and vice versa.

Wow.  That was explained perfectly.  Fletcher says some really profoundly right on shit, every now and then.

Very Happy

I get it.  Fletcher just wants me to order 100 mics from Mercenary.
