    10 SM58s ( I direct vocal groups after all)
    3 SM57s
    2 Senn 421s
    4 Crown 30d PZMs (great for inside a piano or as flanks or ....)

    1 Rode K2
    1 RE20

    Not great, but not bad for a public school! I manage to get the job done with the above. I Plan on repairing some old Shure ribbons that I have laying around and investing in some quality ribbons and small diaphram spot mics in the future.

    Footnote:

    As the market for big studios has collapsed over the past decade, I've seen quite a few mic lockers that would make you weep. I mean shelves and shelves of the most precious vintage models just gathering hypothetical dust. Many hundreds of thousands of dollars of mics that no one has a real use for, but that the owner can't bear to part with. There must be dozens of studios around the world that had a couple of hits in the 70's or 80's, went out and bought an SSL, a bunch of M49's and C12's, gumball and pinball machines... I suppose these will eventually mostly wind up on Ebay.

    I think there was a reason that it stopped at ....13. Maybe no one wants to carry it past that particular #. Maybe it's just that the others looked at these and felt embarassed that "all" they had was some silly DPA's... :roll:
