Any opinions and info on these mics would be appriciated. thanks.
I have two of them and I love them. I'm a pretty much one-track-at-a-time recorder and when I need multiple mics I use my two PRO37R's and my Neumann U89i. Amazingly enough the AT's hold their own against the Neumann! For acoustic guitar for example, I point one of the AT's at the 12th fret and use the Neumann to look over the player's right shoulder.
A couple of years ago I did some recordings of a high school jazz band (a friend was the band director) and I recorded in three tracks, placing the Neumann center-stage (at the front edge of the stage) and the AT's about fifteen feet to the right and left of the Neumann. To my ears it worked well.
Thanks a lot for the reply. I just started recording bands and Ive been looking for an inexpensive way to do overheads or maybe pick up some ambience. Sounds like the 37s might work for this application.
I first became acquainted with the PRO37R when I saw Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, a bluegrass group that features a lot of harmony vocals and acapella stuff. They used a single mic stand with a PRO37R at the top and another on a bracket at about waist level. They gathered around the mic stand, moving in and out for instrumental solos, and the sound was awesome. I asked them what kind of mics they used and they next day I ordered a pair.
I use the pro37s for overheads and think they work very well.I also use Cad e100s,350s and shure sm81s in the same application, and the pro37s hold their own.
Quite excellent on electric guitars.
