Whats in your mic locker? Low-End Theory

So I've been ignoring my mic collection for awhile, while I've been buying up a bunch of outboard... now its back to my mic collection. I've got all my basics covered so its time to buy some fun stuff. So far I have.....

2 421's
4 57's
2 octava 012's
2 AT 25's
2 of those EV mics with swiveling ball thing... i always forget the model #
A rode NTK
And a bunch more random stuff.

I like keeping pairs of stuff around if you cant tell. So im thinking 2 new SD condensors... suggestions? 2 blue baby bottles, and a soundelux 195. I'd really love some ribbons too, but if I pick all these up I wont have any more of a mic budget for awhile.

At some point I want to get a really nice vocal mic like the blue bottle, but I think I'll be able to get by without one if I pick these things up...

So what do you guys have? I have to admit I'm way more of a outboard slut then mic slut. Even though mic choice makes more or a difference in sound they just never seem as *fun* to buy.

I want either 2 x Radio shack PZM's or one 'triangular' Crown stereo PZM also SM7, RE20, AT25.

After a hit I would go for U69, C12, U47, Elam 251, Sony 8000g, Calrec Soundfield, Earthworks QCT omnis... etc etc....

My mic closet is similar to yours, just enough for tracking a rock band without a lot of substitutions available. I've got the same 421s, 57s, and EVs, if you're talking about the N/Dym 408s. I've got SM81s for SD cardioids, as well as a pair of those ECM8k omnis. They're nice on overheads if your room sounds good, I actually use them there more than the 81s. For LDs, I've got a C414B/ULS for a multi-pattern and a TLM103 for a cardioid. I'd like to make it a pair of TLMs for some more flexibility.
I'd go for more condensers, probably a nice multi-pattern LD to use as a second option to your NTK. A Soundelux, Lawson, Blue, Brauner, Sony 800G, or Shure KSM 44 might be nice. Neumann is always a safe bet. For another pair of SDs, the ECM8ks are worth trying, if you think you can swing the price :-). The labels were peeled off mine the day they arrived, now I just refer to them as a pair of generic measurement omnis, ahem...

great so see how our needs differ from collection to collection, some of yall with the killer lists - would be cool to see how your cabinet has grown over the past year, 2 years, 5 and 10 years Those collections look like they have definatly grown over a decade or so. Timeline your mic growth out, unless you took out a decent loan and went on a spree...

I feel I can do alot with what I have, very little I "need" - very much I WANT.

currently own:

Schoeps cmc6/mk4v x 2 (matched)
Neumann U87ai
AKG 414 BULS
AKG D12e (70s)
Shure sm-7
Shure sm-57 x 4
Sennheiser e604 x 3
Sennheirse 421
Electro-Voice N/D 408

the to do list:

Royer 121 x 2
Earthworks tc-30k x 2
Shure beta-91 (kick pzm)
BLUE babby bottle
AKG 451
Sennheiser 441

For me I have a good utility set rounded out, and often track with access to other mic cabinets (or rentals) - so I am really looking to fill small holes in my collection, and add a few other lifetime-achievers

Got to play around with the newly arrived Beyer Soundstar MKII's.
They sound like the microphone an SM58 wants to be when it grows up.
Smoooth, detailed, and resistant to popping.
First heard of them from posts by Harvey Gerst about how good these are
on R.A.P. He told me recently they sound somewhat like a Shure SM7.

Are the OSA really int he ballpark of reall API's?

Also do u have an email address for MR OSA... ive looked high and low fro him on the net but cant turn up a thing!
I like the 672s a lot. More midrange and a little darker, less bottom then the Vintech/Neve 1272s. They compliment each other well. Yes, I do have contact info for OSA. I'll do a complete post on the preamps soon, give me another week or two. In the meantime check this out http://www.oldschoolaudio.com/

MICS

CAD VX-2 - CAD's flagship mic. I love the hell out of it! KILLERRR on distorted guitar cabs, vocals, and any room sounds. Too bad people shy away from the CAD name just cos they don't know it, or they think all CAD mics suck (some of them do). Probably among the best (top 10) modern LD tube mics around.

U87
4060
4050 x 2

Royer R121 x 2 - Still afraid to try what I saw in antoher post, where two of these were smashed up into the grill of an Orange (or any) guitar cab.

KM184 x 2
CAD E200
Beta 52
Beta 57 x 2

Beta 87 x 2 - Ever try one on snare? I've gotten either great results (better than 57 or Beta 57), or completely useless **** from this mic

SM57 x 5
Sennheiser E504 x 5 - These are rad little tom mics
AKG C-408 x 4

I want more SD condensers (looking at Schoeps), more LD vocal type mics (U67 would be nice, and another VX-2), and a few 421's. Oh yeah, specifically wanting to try the Blue Kiwi mic. I bet it kills.

INPUT/PROCESSING

Vintech 1272
Great River MP2
CraneSong Flamingo
Manley Dual Mono 40db
Soundcrafy Ghost pre's (ick, but the eq is nice)

Manley Massive Passive
Manley Vari-Mu
RNC x 2
Distressor x 2 stereo link option
1969 Mercenary Edition (BIG SWITCH BABY! YEAH!)
