Here's an odd one: Earthworks M23. I initially bought one to measure my room acoustics. Then I bought another because I thought it sounded pretty good as a room mic. Those mic's paired with a Neve type preamp make for unbelievable room mic's. I mainly use them to record band practices and the details they pic up are quite astonishing--and they don't even sound harsh at all. Now they are also my go-to for distant drum room mics, usually low in the mix, to add depth an air. I think I paid $800 for the pair when they were on sale. Amazing value, if you ask me. Having my band practices and random jams sound 'mixed' even when recorded with just these two mic's something I've been searching for for years. It helps that the live room has great acoustics, of course. Anyway, highly recommended!

after some years here are new additions of gear that gave me the wow factor:

- the sound of the preamp and eq on my newly built AML EZ1073

the pre is really thick and nice but that eq... simply breathtaking.

also on another level is the novation super drum-station - to me the best 808/909 clone i had my hands on so far. also great in combination with the novation super bass-station - for some instant acid filter sounds...

peace, rez
