R101 too much for tape?

Thinking about getting a pair for OH. Too much to match with going to tape? I afraid things might be too dull. I have used a sf24 a bunch, but I was recording straight into PT.

Great question. Depending on the deck you are using I think this would be fine. I found I still needed to tame highs quite a bit going to tape with km84's. Some of this was because of the DolbyS on my unit. I haven't used the 101's but if I liked them in my DAW I'd use them on tape with out a second thought.

That sounds like a fun gig. If you are using a tape machine you are not familiar with it is smart to take a feed for you DAW as well as a back up. I always do this when I use tape. Once and a while you'll get a drop out or something funky will happen. A backup is smart.
