Unlike some folks here, I simply don't care for the PR35. I had a pair of them and was utterly disappointed YMMV. When reaching for something other than a 58 there are a couple of mics I quite like. One is the Sennheiser 431 Profipower. Although discontinued years ago, they are not that hard to find. For smoother, jazz kinda stuff I find them nearly unbeatable. For a good all-rounder I prefer the Senn 935 and for louder stages (or other issues) I keep a handful of EV967's. Glad to read about the connection between Alison Krause and the SM86. Always loved her vocals, never knew what she was using. For cabinets I like the SM59 or an EV308.
