Here for the gear

I've been using an EV RE20 on my tenor saxophone for over 30 years, both live and recording. I think it's the best all-around mic for tenor saxophone, trumpet, and trombone. It is extremely durable, and has a lot of depth to the sound if you EQ it right. I've used it on kick drum as well, but there are probably better choices. It has a low proximity effect, and can handle high sound pressure levels as well. I also own a couple of Sennheiser 441s, but I definitely prefer the sound of the EV for horns and low-end drums.
