    at this point, i have a very limited mic collection with a similarly limited budget, but over the next 2-3 months i anticipate having around $600 to upgrade my mic collection with.
    what i have now: 1 rode nt1000, 1 mxl603s, 1 atm25, 2 sm57s.
    what i've been thinking of getting: either a pair of sd condensors (SP C4s are looking good, $370 new) and a multipattern ld condensor (SP C3 seems to be the cheapest, around $240 used), or another mxl603s and a bunch of dynamics (421, re20, m260).
    everything will be running into a soundcraft 200b board, then into an otari mx5050 8 track when needed for that "analog" sound, with everything eventually going into a delta1010. i'll probably be working mostly with indie/punk rock type bands, but i'm definitely open to recording other types of music, from bluegrass to hip-hop. thanks for any comments,
  2. I would at least try and get a match for the 603. I have heard you can send yours back to the factory and have them match one for you. Check with their support center on that.

    Then you have $500 left... I guess I would go for highest quality single mic I could for that amount. Your preference.
