  1. i'm looking at getting a pair of AM52's because they are only $199 a piece right now at musicians friend. i want a pair of mics with switchable patterns. i'm going to mainly use them for recording string quartets, vocals, other acoustic combos. price does matter, so please don't suggest i go get a C12 or something like that. thanks.
  2. http://www.apexjr.com has some Alesis surplus AM61 tube mics for $100 each. They don't have shockmount or power supplies, but a shockmount can be purchased for $15.99 from musiciansfriend, and there are schematics for a power supply included with the mic.

    I bought two, as well as a couple SM1 shockmounts, and I'm having the power supply built for $60.

    $300 total

    Not too bad.

    Somebody recommended those to me, not sure if it was that model. Please post your opinion if you decide to get one.
