SDC Overheads advice
I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I'm debating about revising my mic cabinet as far as SDC's are concerned, and am having a hard time making a decision.
I have a matched pair of Neumann KM184's. I've only used them on a handful of projects, but I haven't done anything yet where they've really just made me go WOW!. I'm starting to think that maybe they just aren't what I'm looking for in overhead mics.
In the past I have used SM-81's and gotten some very usable results. The A-T ATM450's have also come very highly recommended on this site. I'm also curious about the Avant CK-1, as I have read a very favorable review on them. Finally, I have become a fan of 414's as overheads, so a possibility is a pair of these second hand, or a pair of the new 214, if they seem to be of comparable quality.
I'm just not sure what to do. Should I keep the 184's. Should I sell them and use the money to invest in another pair of mics, and if so, which ones? Right now I am ignoring the other various sources they can be used on and focusing on drum overheads, as this would be my primary application for them.
What do you guys think?
