I see you guys have a lot of mics I would love to try.

Here's my list:

2xShure SM57
2xAudix I5
1xSennheiser e609
1xAKG D112

1xAudio Technica AT4050
2xAudio Technica AT4040
1xKel Audio HM1
2xRode NT5(Stereo Pair)
1xSterling Audio ST31

Next Mic Purchases:
1xM Audio Sputnik (I should have this by the end of the month and i'm excited to try it out. None of the mics I have really excel at the vocalists i've been working with and this has received some great reviews. I can also get it for quite a bit cheaper than street price so it's even more attractive to me.)
2xSterling Audio ST44 (Potential rock/jazz drum OH)
1xShure SM7B (Good choice for rock vocals?)
1-3xSennheiser MD421II (Does anyone here know if there's a distinct sound difference between the original and the MKII U4?)
1xElectro Voice RE20

First post from a Gearslut, and a good place to start.

2 Schoeps CMC6/MK2S (matched)
1 Royer SF-12
3 Shure KSM 137/SL
1 Shure KSM 44

Classical, choral and piano recording - hence, the makeup of the cabinet.
