feedback, advice, suggestions to round out mic arsenal???
as you can see below, most of my mics are bang for the buck stuff, yet the kind that i can keep + use for years to come, in my humble opinion... i need to keep with that theme for the short term.
with the above as a parameter, i would really appreciate mic suggestions that would make for an effective + flexible mic collection.
FWIW, they'll be used for alt. country, r&r from the hardest to the softest, jazz - bebop+swing... brazilian, motown r+b, funk, reggae, electronica, middle eastern (acoustic instruments mostly), latin + african influenced stuff, and on classical instrumentation ( small string sections etc... ) - really, anything from the loudest motorhead/death metal to the quietest, most delicate + sublime passages...
among other things, for example, i believe i need some SDC's ( oktavas come to mind). so, are there other tried + true bang for $ SDCs?
in addition to SDCs, any other suggestions?
here's a list of my mics:
Beyerdynamic M260N(C) x 2 (1 straight+1 tapered shaft) ...may be modded to 77DX
