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 ....)
2 SP B1s (try 'em on tenor sax!)
2 Rode NT5s
1 Rode K2
1 RE20
1 Beyer 99
1 Audix D5

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.

EV RE-200
EV N/D257A
Beyer TG-X50,

I'll be getting the Sennhieser 416 shotgun in the near future.
