    Hi all,

    I know this is a long shot but you never know!
    I am a big fan of the drum sound on the metallica "black" album.
    I have the making of it on video, I like to check out mic placement mic choice, etc. The only mic I cant work out is the hi-hat mic.
    I thought there may be someone who knows, or recognises it by description. The only way I can describe it is: long microphone, kinda like an MD441 or RE20, but it has a long, thick wind sock on it, the sock is in the shape of a McDonalds coke cup, smaller end to the front, because most of the mic is covered I cant see it. Well hopefuly the above description can spark a memory with someone!!
    Like I said I know its a long shot, but its killing me!!

    I didn't see the DVD but it sounds a little like a Shure SM-7. It has a large pop screen that looks like you description.

    Is there a way you can capture a screen shot of the mic and post it? That would help ....

    Could it be a Shure SM7?

    good idea, but unfortunately I dont have the required equipment to do so, may be able to puase the video and take a photo with my digital camera and post it, I'll sus it out.

    hmmm, could be a 57.

    Just noticed that I had repeeated Little Dog. :oops:

    If you have a DVD player in your computer, you can wait till the scene appears, hit 'print screen' on the keyboard, go to paint, and paste the image in there.
