Hi, I have just finished a location recording session with a classical vocal sextet and really enjoyed the whole experience and am really very inspired to do a lot more of these in the future. For this session I borrowed a pair of Rode NT5 SDC's and Audio Technica AT4040 LDC's. Now that I have decided to pursue doing more mobile/location classical recordings I will need to buy my own mics. My budget is around £450 for a stereo pair and I would like the option of different pickup patterns etc. Firstly should I buy a pair of small diaphragm condensers or large diaphragm condensers and why? Having had a quick look around I'm interested in :- SMALL DIAPHRAGM JZ Microphones BT201/1s pair + cardiod capsules (I would need to add additional capsules when I've saved up for them) Oktava MK012 pair + cardioid, hyper cardioid, omni and -10db capsules :- £382 Rode NT55 pair + cardioid and omni capsules :- £455 or LARGE DIAPHRAGM CAD M179 pair multi pattern :- £370 Rode NT1000 pair multi pattern :- 438 Rode NT2a pair multi pattern :- £450 pair What would you recommend?
