I own an MC930 pair, AT4050, SM81, SM57, and I'm looking to spend up to $1500 for a single mic that does something different and special and hopefully outperforms the ones I have and becomes my go to mic. What do you think would complement this collection for fingerstyle steel string and nylon string...
...from the 70s. I use a Shure Beta52a just inside the hole of the kick, sm57 on the snare, and Beyerdynamic MC930 in Glyn Johns roughly 2 drumsticks from the snare to both mics. The preamps are Audient ASP800 into Apogee Quartet via adat and into Logic X. I used a little eq, compression and reverb...

This high-quality, universal condenser microphone features an exceptional price/performance ratio.Features of the MC 930 are the wide frequency response of 40 - 20,000 Hz and a signal-to-noise ratio of 71 dB. The MC 930 is suitable for miking choirs, orchestras and solo instruments. Due to the switchable pre-attenuation of 15 dB it provides excellent performance at high sound pressure levels. The switchable bass roll-off filter with 6 dB/Octave at 250 Hz compensates for proximity effects. With the WS 101 wind screen the MC 930 can be used for vocal applications and speech. The MC 930 is phantom powered (11 - 52 V) and is suitable for live applications and installations. Due to its cardioid polar pattern, the MC 930 has a high-gain-before feedback and eliminates noise from the rear. It is not only a first-class tool for studios, but also for sound contracting systems, where excellent sound and maximum gain-before-feedback is required. Features
