Snare mics other than 57?

Anyone using something besides or in conjunction with a 57 on snare? What are you getting from it?

Audix i5 - more modern take on a 57

EV RE10 - I like it on piccolo, brass, or just weird-sounding/oddly tuned/shitty snares

I use a Gefell 582/m94 in conjunction with the overheads. It gives me a good snare sound.

I normally use them on toms but recently tried it on snare and was pleasantly surprised

sm81 on bottom. Get pretty much everything the top won't when it comes to sizzle.

I tried The Josephson e22S in a studio blew me away I always used the 57. A lot more detail as in you don't really need a bottom sn mic. I didn't really use the HH so I couldn't tell the separation.

M201 in some circumstances but it can be a bit 'pingy' for some tracks.

Sm7 is nice.

441

Etc etc

Been Using an SM7 a lot lately, with the right snare drum and a 57 on the bottom I don't really need an EQ.

EV RE38N

It's very fat sounding because of the diameter of the diaphragm (about like an RE20, but much shorter body and easy to position on snare).

Hard to go wrong with an i5 for a hundred bucks new. Little more meat than a 57 but sometimes it's just enough of a change to really work better.

I also use a beyer m260 on snare with good results.

As already said, M201 and i5 are good.
I have both and 57s too but I love the Audio Technica ATM650.
Better snap and body IMO.

Audix i5 or Heil PR20 is nice on Snare - each has a bit more high frequency extension, as Granny Gremlin said, a more "modern" take on a 57.

Another vote for the Beyer M201. Also, a Beyer M88 can sound thick 'n thuddy, if that's what you're going for.

Thanks everybody. Been just doi g 57s for 10 years and not sure why I never tried anything else.
For the heck of it I added a 251 a few weeks ago and it was refreshing.
Wanted to find out what everyone else was using.
This could get expensive...

I thought to buy a second or sell it to put towards other gear. I just didn't use it enough. I'd love a pair of ebs with the CK12s.

I used an M88 on snare for years, I really should again soon.
