No, but I've heard good things. These days I'm using th ATM23he snare drum mic a lot and it's working for me. I usually mic the shell if I'm using a wood drum. I think I put up an M88 next time though.Originally posted by Han:
Tony, talking about Beyer and snare, have you tried the M201 yet?
The M88 is a dynamic, the M500 is a ribbon mic. All the usual ribbon mic caution should be afforded (don't blow into them, use them outdoors, shut the case too fast, etc.). I haven't heard of using the 500 on drums, but a lot of people like the M160 or M260 as overheads. I'd just worry about the SPL's of close micing the snare. Those Radio Shack SPL meters can be handy, and just check the mic's spec on the Beyer website.What is the difference bewteen the M88 and M500? I have been using the M500 on rock Guitar amps and like the sound over a 57 sometimes. Never tried it on a snare...good idea.
I agree...I like the M88 quite a bit, a very underrated and flexible mic. I could do a track with one and a small diaphragm condensor.
Not a Neuman but an AKG414. I was on the my side of the glass ... I pushed to talk and said "be careful not to bump that mic stand" .... "What was that?"... as they spun around and down it went!Originally posted by Han:
Have you dropped a (big) Neumann yet? [/QB]
