Alright, so here's my small dilema... I am going to be recording some sax coming up here pretty soon for a rock song. The player is incredible, in fact he has a doctorate's in music (he is the band director at the local college as well), so I really don't want to screw this one up! My question is out of the following microphones I currently own - that I think would suit this application - (though I can be in the position to rent a microphone if need be) which would be the most suitable: SM57, AT 3035, MXL 993, Apex 435. My gut tells me just to stick with the 57. I've seen it used live countless times and in person the last time I hung out with John Legend's band they had a horn section on tour and if memory serves my correct with the exception of a tenor sax (which they used a Beta on) all the other instruments used a SM57. Also what kind of EQ would make it stand out and sound amazingly sexy in a rock song? Like something out of Saturday Night Live is what I'm going for. It's going to either be an Alto Saxophone or a (Kenny G) Soprano Sax for this song. Thanks in advance, and in about a month I'll be recording a viola so stay tuned for the question...YIKES!
