I've always preferred recordings that have used LD Tube Condensers for drum overheads...whether it be U67's or C12's...expensive taste I know, it's a flaw. :wink: I know it's always an outrageous thing to do in any aspect of life to say 'give me this mic's sound for $x.xx'. All I can say is that I have about a $600 budget per mic, and I'd like to achieve quality results with preferably a LD tube-based condenser OH setup. With the original mics in mind, what are my options? I haven't heard any examples of the Rode K2's used as overheads. Anyone have experience with these? Thanks!
