Ok. Setting up a small studio in the next 6 months for local bands to record on.

Now I expect to have mostly Rock->Heavy rock/metal and all in between but I will have some ambient and Rap here and there.

Now I need to out fit the studio with mics for all seasons.

Where should I start. I would rather start with the tried and true then build on that if everything goes ok.

I was thinking:

( 1-2 ) AKG C414 - VOX mainly
( 8 ) SR57's (Drums and Cabs)
( 2 ) SM58's (Drums & Cabs)
