Grab a couple of SE v2's for your kit, everyone needs a few.  They are an awesome value for $100.00.  Get the cool Billy Gibbons chrome ones for $149.00!  Seriously a really well performing microphone.

You know my vocal mics come out maybe twice a year, almost everyone I work with brings their own, I pretty much use my mics on Amps, and Drums, thats about it.

I semi-retired to raise a family back in the early 2000s. I still work for the sound company I started out with back in the 80s, they are mostly plays, graduations and religious services these days, so I bought some stuff for fun, weekend warrior, hobbyist, whatever you want to call me.

I was in a band full time from 1997 to 2001 and we jointly owned our PA and I ran sound from the drum kit.  When we disbanded I bought all of the gear.  A sorry collection.  Mackie 1604, 4 Yamaha SM15Vs, couple of Crown amps, some cheap 31-band eqs.  Since then Iíve been selling the weakest link in the chain and buying its replacement, over and over again.  Now Iíve got a pretty nice system for a guy with a live sound hobby.  I run sound for the occasional band but mostly I volunteer my time and the gear for local events in the town I live in and the schools my kids attend.

1 SQ5 with 2 DX168s
3 Yamaha MG10XU for smaller stuff

2 Martin Audio CDDLive!15 tops
8 EV PXM 12MP monitors or for other utility solutions
2 QSC K8.2

2 Martin Audio SXP218
1 QSC KS212C for small stuff or as a drum monitor paired with a PXM 12MP

Wired mics:
Shure SM58 (8), SM57 (4), B58 (4), B57 (4), B52 (1), B87A (3), B91 (2)
Beyer Dynamics M201 (2)
Senn 604 (6), 609 (2)
Rode NT5 (4)
Nueman KMS 105 (1)
Audio D2 (2), D4 (1), D6 (1), OM5 (1), OM7 (1)

4 Shure QLXD4 receivers
4 Hand held transmitters with 2 SM58 & 2 B58 capsules
1 Body pack transmitter with a headset mic

2 Countryman
2 Radial JDI
2 Radial J48
2 Radial SB-5
1 Radial JDI Duplex

Speaker and mic stands:
All K&M

Lots of cable: xlr, cat5e, trs, and power
