i just got a delta 1010 system for christmas (been using a 788 portapotty way too long), i have a set of matched pair SP condensors, shure drum kit mics, and some spare 58/57s around, but i've still got some left over christmas money to burn on a nice microphone. i figured a large diaphragm was probably a good choice for my next mic. i was looking to keep things reasonable in price, $500 perhaps. i was also told a mutli polar pattern mic was the best choice for someone like myself who doesn't have a wealth of mics yet. i'll be going into a 1604, out the inserts, into the 1010 to record. any information about the characteristics or personal experience with the type of mics i'm looking for is greatly appreciated. if you need to know anything else about what i'm using, equipment or instruments just ask. thanks.
