Talking Ahoy! Time to approve (or diss) my choice for preeessssss !!

OK OK So I'm moving on to better pres. Yes, we're also upgrading (read:building) "real" recording rooms. With fine acoustics.
I associated the pres with mics were going to use on purpose. You then might understand my needs. Our budget is 5000.

So here we go:

DRUMROL


1. A Designs MP-2A: Bass drums (d6, subkick) / bass guitars (di)

2. Toft Audio ATC-2: Toms (md 421)

3. Chameleon Labs: Snare top (sm57) / guitars (e609) / vocals (at4040, gt-66 etc)

4. Sytek MPX-4ii: Overheads (mk-012) + Snare under (e609) + Floor tom (beta 52)


Sounds good? Sounds awful? Tell me !

hmmm, with $5k...
i'd rather go with an API 3124 ($2400 - 4 channels),
the Sytek ($900 - 4 channels)
and an A-Deisngs Pacifica ($1549 at altomusic.com - 2 channels)

use either the API or Pacifica for OH (depending on the song), and for vox/guitar/bass/snare/kick. And sprinkle the Sytek around the rest of the kit (toms, bottom of snare)
