I grew up seeing the Senior engineers all using 57's on the top of the snare, and I kinda equated it as a drum mike. The other night we had to put down a guide vocal for an artist we're producing that overseas, so we could show her where to sing. A session vocalist friend rocked up and we were feeling slack, so I gave her a hand held 57 and we did the vocals in the control room. Used it into a shep sn8 then 1176 and thought it didn't have to be that good, just a guide. Thing is, it sounded really good....not like a condenser good, but it's own great sound.
Hmmm.
