I currently run a small studio out of my house. I use Sonar 3 on a P4 PC. My mics include: Beta 58, SM57, KSM27, AT2020, PG81's, PG56's, Beta52. I use a Presonus firepod for interface. I am about to go into a HUGE studio overhaul. Just to give you an idea of what I will be purchasing... New computer, KRK V6 monitors, 2 SM81, KSM33, Senn 421, ART pre, Sonar 4 Producer, DSP cards... Anyway, my concern is my crappy PG56 mics I use on toms. I was wondering... I only have about $450 tops to spend on tom mics, and I was looking at Beta56 but would getting 3 SM57s work just as well? It would be cheaper, and I could use them for lots of other things. I already have 1 57. Honestly, I like the idea of 270 for the tom mics as opposed to 450 with betas, and I could use the extra money for extra gear. Anyone have any input or suggestions?
