I have a huge mic locker so I won't list them all. I'll just list the ones I use the most.

Shure SM27 - Vocals, acoustic guitar and amp.

MXL V69ME Tube mic. I installed Tongsol, gold plated tube. - Acoustic instruments and vocals.

sE 2200A MKII- Vocals and classical guitar

ISK Pearl - Acoustic instruments, vocals, guitar amp and drum overhead. This mic is fast becoming one of my favorites and is an unbeatable value for its price point.

I usually run all the above through an ART MPA Gold Stereo tube mic pre.

what model Neumann's and what do you use them on? Vocals, acoustic guitars, guitar amps? I had a pair of TLM 103'S and wasn't all that impressed with them. I liked them for drum overheads but didn't find them all that useful on anything else.

My 3 most used mic's are my U87 and pair of KM183, I use them on almost everything, but I also have many more mic's that I use... For example, my Sennheiser 421, EV RE20, etc.

I was looking for mics to record my violin. I bought a couple of sE Electronics sE7 mics. Not a matched pair. They were GC returns. When I went in to GC, there was a pair of Rodes that were basically the same thing but more expensive. Small diaphram condenser pencil mics.

So far I haven't looked back.They also work great for acoustic guitar and vocals. Work well using the included wind screen playing keys singing into one because they aren't as likely to pick up the keys noise as an LDC mic.The sE7's a great mics.

Though I'm mainly still using my Shure KSM44a for detailed studio work, I just tracked an album for a guy who sounded best on the AT4043. Seemed to bring out the best in his voice.
