AKG c430 vs AT Pro-37

    Anyone have suggestions? I am debating either the AKG c430 and the AT Pro-37. I would be getting 2 of either and the difference in price would be about $40. Anyone with experience?

    Used the C430. Not a big fan. VERY tricky to use as stereo drum overheads and pick up the whole kit. Not bad to use just to spot mic a cymbal. Poor off-axis response. A fair bit of self-noise, too. Don't know what you are planning on doing with these, but I think you should get the SP C4's over the AKG C430's.

    These will most often be used to mic an orchestra type setting where we only need 2 mics up front for a reinforcement job. Occasionally as a stage reinforcement. (I know a boundary mic like the PCC160 is a better idea, but hey, you do what you can with what you got). And also untill I get my LDCs possible piano micing. Thanks a lot.

    Oooooo.....
    I think you ask too much of the C430. Probably wanna scratch it off your list. Might look into some ADK mics. I think they have some good cheap ones. Or possibly Kel mics.

    Well, I'm just starting out and the only places I really know about are musiciansfriend, pssl, sam ash, and ebay. Suggestions as to where I could look up the ADK or Kels?
