I prefer a "limited menu" approach to micing live shows (which says more 81s), and I haven't ever had an issue with the collection as is, but I would enjoy some outside voices here.
Should I add 214s?
Thanks for the responses everyone! You are all helpful. I've got a pair of 451s, a pair of 414s, an M88, 4 x 421, etc. We all have 10+ 58s, 10+ 57s, 2 x B52s, B57s, and the like. When I really thought about it, it became apparent that the "critical path" had already been established by the existing 81s. There are many hit 'n' run soundchecks where a fat brace of identical SDCs makes life easier on everyone.In retrospect, it wasn't so much about "ultimate sound", but about good sound fast.More 81's it is!!
KSM32 is also on that list for me at least. For the gain and go gigs it is hard to beat for a large diaphragm.
