I've tried one AT4033 as overhead, it was quite bright but a little weak in the low end..
Thanks for any opinions
I used 4033's for a while, but as soon as I switched to Earthworks, it was night and day. The 4033's work but you really must make sure the room and placement is perfect. But with all that said sometimes when I am doing a punk band I will use one 4033 over head to get that trash sound. Placing it about 4 to 5 feet high off center of the kick, in front of drums about 3 feet. Kind of a cool trick
