charter oak m900, Peluso cemc6 or Josephson C42

i'll throw the KM 184 into the picture too...

hello.
I know I'm going to get killed for posting this but I did a search and didn't find a comparison of these 4 mics.

I'm looking for drum OH's for rock. i'm looking for something big and fat, like a KM 84. I am trying to avoid buying used mics, but if i find a good pair of 84's in nice shape (and that i can listen to before i buy) then that would be my first choice. But I would like to find something new that would be comparable.
thanks

KM 184 (and the Josephson c42) is nice but missing the 'big and fat' part of the km84 sound that you're looking for... never tried the other two...

I think the ATM450 is the answer to your dreams, that mic fits overheads very well.

Check out Gefell M300s as well...more like an 84 than a KM184. C42s are really good as OHs too, and a bargin at the price.

+1 for the KM184's. Waaaaay better than the Peluso's or the ATM450's for drum OH's.

that would be a nice cheap solution. Does anyone else love these for OH's?

If you are looking for km84 tone, the c42s are NOTHING like them, though they may be appropriate for the same types of tracking situations. They are very hyped/colored in the high end... especially for closer micing apps. Cool mics though.

I know I´m repeating myself......but I don´t really like the new km184´s for the price!

...and I found the Beyerdynamic MC930 to be much closer sonically to the good ol´km84!!
that would be MY proposal

Beyer makes good stuff. That's a really good idea and should be looked at as well.

which of these mics (or their omni equivalents) would be best suited towards classical recording? or acting as a main pair?
i like what i've heard of the pelusos. i don't like what i've heard of the 184s.

The Gefell M300 is superb, without any doubt. Fabulous on acoustic instruments.

Try the Elation KM201 if you can find one. It is a perfect KM84i substitute. Great mic, well balanced with soul. You can get a matched pair for the price of a single M300.

I love the ATM450's over my 451's and my peluso CEMC6. They sound right and have great imaging and they are tiny and easy to place.
