So all of my gear, just about all of it anyway, belongs to my guitarist from my old band, my namesake, anyway he bought the Firepod to record the album, and then we used mostof his mic's and stands (i've acquired quite a few more than he brought so i can live without them) we did that and then its stayed at my house ever since. now the band has broken up and he wants it back so i'm scowering ebay! so far to replace two sm57's of his im looking at a pair of Shure USA 545D. To replace the DAW I'm either going with the Aardvark Q10 (again) or another FP10. How are those 545D's? Same thing as 57's i'd imagine only american made and older?
