I so respect your opinions and I do not have a quality pair of SDC's.  There is a kit of these on eBay 2 with the stereo bracket and a case.  Paypal, 0 interest, could pay for them out of my "allowance" serious GAS kicking in......help
Do it.  I assume you meant "help" encourage you.

Try 'em! You'll be seriously shocked if you've never used them before.

For us, SM137 is a general purpose, rugged, small capsule condenser that fits in a standard mic clip that costs $180.

I just noticed today that you can get a 2-pack of A-T 4041 mics for a good price. 

Seems like there are a few inexpensive mics that are pretty good (Pro37, SM137, ADX51, etc), then a step up (4041, KSM137, Aston Origen, Audix M1280 or whatever the Micro model is, etc).

What do you mean by snare side? Snare bottom mic?


Honestly if you have some 57's, throw them up for OH's and Hat and just try. There's nothing wrong with a 57. Are there better options? Sure. But many famous recordings have been done with just 57's and nobody complained.

Wow, what a great article, thanks for sharing it!  I just went back to the song to refresh my memory.  Funny coincidence to see this, as just this morning I had watched them play "She's Gone" on Old Grey Whistle Test for no particular reason.  No EQ, no compression, all SM57s.  How interesting.

Here is something a little more recent. Now they have a bigger budget for condensers for the O.H.!
