I wish I had the cash money bling bling to support this shootout, lol. I don't remember, do you have a good preamp to support the U87? I think you're going to want one (that matches the quality of the U87) if you unload that kind of green on a mic, or is that what a black lion auteur is? Either way, that's a great list you have for your next improvement. I just upgraded my XLR's, and what a difference! my two best upgrades of 2010 would be the mogami's and the Bottle Rocket....

I don't think you can ever go wrong with the U87, but you might be able to get more bang for your buck elsewhere.

yeah, i don't like the sm58 that much. but fashion is where you find it.

the 57 is hard to beat at 1/16th the price of a u87.

e-kits. forget those sounds imo. get bfd if you want good sounding acoustic drums. get the platinum series if you want to hear god in the drums. :D

why don't you lend me your u87 and convert me?
