So, it's been a while since I chimed in on this thread.

I just wanted to thank everyone for your input/advice.  What a great community, and it's so cool you all are forthcoming with your (excellent) advice.  Much appreciated.

I still haven't settle on any particular approach yet, but the responses here are definitely helping me get there.  I'd love to find a VP88 "for $250-$300" used, but that seems a pretty far stretch.  Most of the best deals I've seen out there are still $600 and up.  If anyone knows of a deal (or wants to make one) in the price range quoted above, let me know.  Or, to add a new question to the thread...."What would be a good, budget friendly, alternative mic that could be used the way a VP88 has been suggested?"

I'm going to play around with GJ/DPA approach and see how that might work for me.  I've got plenty of SM57s around (and these I can find used/cheap all day long).

thanks again,
dzx

Save $$$ for SM81, that one will get the job done, for what you need, or invest in some tom mics :)

ps: the P170 is great bang for the buck, just ordered a second one today!
