I just got a pair of atm450's for use primarily as drum OH's.

Just wondering what else you guys use these on?

I know, I know... just try 'em on whatever, see how it sounds...

Just want some starting points

Snare drum!!!!

It's also seems cool on toms, but only have one so haven't actually put it to the test during a real session.

It's such a damn cute mic.

Sounds like mostly drum uses. I'll be using the only two I have for overheads however. I'll have to test it out though, if it sounds real nice maybe I'll buy a third

Probably be good on acoustic guitar if you want a thinner/brighter sound.

Yeah, I tried that with one the other day and it sounded all right. didn't blow me away by any means.

I might give it another shot now that I have a pair.

Really dig on guitar cabs where the 57's usually go.
