You have a lot of LDC's. How does the cactus hold up? And what about the blue balls?
And speaking of blue balls, c1000's? Really? Tell me what they still get used for at your place.
LOL, I haven't used the C1000's in probably 6 years, but I never sell my mics. I can bet that the C1000's WON'T be a classic anytime soon. lol
Total coincidence on the Dragonflys and the Martechs. I really dig the Dragonfly Deluxes alot, especially the rotating capsules, they are my go to Tom Mics, they are good all around mics like the C414 minus the Switchable patterns. The only use I found for the Blue balls is on a Roland JC120. Never really cared for that amp much but the Balls sounded pretty good on that amp.
The Cactus is an awesome Mic. I just finished a CD where that was 9 out of 10 tunes for the lead vox, with the Soundelux U95 on the 10th. The U95's are hands down my favorite vocal mics and The Brauner Valvet is the go to backing vocal mic for that airy "cut through the mix" tone. Can usually find a place for all the mics depending on the project.
P.S. The C1000 was my first studio mic.........Got the 2nd one free from a company.
