Might get a Shure endorsement deal, what to get?

what could I ask?

I have a Home studio with these mics:

AT4040
AT2020(xlr)
SM57
MD421

I think I'll ask for an SM7b and what else do you recommend I get from them? do they have in-ears? I might be interested in some in-ears for mixing


what do you think? I don't think I can't ask for more than 1,500 - 2,000 bucks worth of stuff.....

I have my monitors and I have sony MDR-7506 which I love, but I wanted to get some molded in-ears for mixing too.....(using all three) plus, live gigs too since I'm a musician (singer songwriter)

I play acoustic pop and blues rock, which is what I record mostly. But I dabble in some pop, rock, and even light electronic music since I create jingles too.

My needs are mostly for vocals and guitars (acou. guitars, elec guitars) etc since I'm a singer and Voice Over actor.

Oh, and a few SM57s (and/or SM58s) would be nice - would be helpful for live shows too.

I'd ask for a pair of ksm137, sounds nice and rugged enough to be used live also, and one (or both) of their ribbons (formerly known as crowley and tripp)... 313 and 353..

Just my 0.02$,

a pair of 44's, a pair of 81's, beta 52, sm7 and a handfull of 57's. that should cover most things. ask about those new side address 81 things, forget the model # and maybe a 91? (the boundary, inside kick mic)

I am not shure I would use in ears for mixing, but they shure are great for mic placement.

If you do voice-overs then get the ribbons. and a KSM44 for any acoustic guitars you might record as well as a go-to vocal mic most of the time.

However, having a range of mics will benefit you for getting different sounds, live recording but also drums if you ever need to.

I don't know how much you are on the road and how much in the studio..I see that if you're more on the road might have more sense going with a pair of sdc and dynamics..(of course I don't know how it's based your live shows, so it depends) Btw both the ribbons and the ksm137 are very nice on ac gtr.. I bet those ribbons will be nice in front of a gtr cab as well, and you should try it in the studio as a vocal mic, you might be surprised.. heh
Btw the SM7 is also a very good alternative..
After all it all depends from the source..Try to find the best mic for your sources, gtr's and vocals, etc.. I'm sure that they will allow you to try try whatever you want and keep what do you need, in the terms of that deal..

Bests,

Get one Shure SM7. Very good on voices when paired with a good preamp. Last Arctic Monkeys album "Suck It And See" has all the guitars tracked with SM7's... seemed funny to me, very full bodied and dynamic-miked guitar sound!
In my experience as well, no more problem with "esses" when tracking voice!

Btw, in ears for mixing??? You'll get ear fatigue so easily...

Question: Why are they sponsoring you in the first place?

If you knew the guys in Shures product development and engineering departments you wouldn't make these remarks!
How many times have we heard "58 killer" ?

They seem to be losing that stalwart also at least a wee bit. Don't get me wrong I love my shures but if you're going to adopt small companies ideas at least undercut them:=)

I have a tv show in my country (music related) and this store represents Shure and Digitech (along with harman, etc) and they want to advertise themselves in my show, I asked for gear instead of money in exchange.

I don't run a full on studio, nor I record bands, either live or in my home studio. This is a project studio where I record MY music and my voice over work, along with jingle creation.

I have an array of guitars and amps (both acoustic and electric) which I mic, same with vocals. Drums I either pay a full on drummer who has a full on studio and he tracks over there, or I used plugins such as SD2.0 or something else.

So my needs are basically Vocals, acoustic/electric guitar micing.

I want in-ears for two things: 1) live use, and 2nd to verify my mixes...I won't mix the whole project with them, but they can come in VERY handy to double check mixes.

Also please remember I prob. won't be able to get more than 1,500 bucks worth of gear...........
