    Hiya all,

    Been reading a lot on this forum but your sage advice would be appreciated on helping me choose a MP of condensers that I can use for 3 purposes - drum OHs in my dead room, my 1928 Grotrian Steinweg Upright Piano in my laminate-wood floored large living room, and acoustic guitar in my dead room.
    Some that I have in mind...

    Earthworks QTC30
    Earthworks TC30K
    Groove Tubes GT44
    Rode NT5

    I know there's a marked difference in price between these...

    Could I get away with separately purchased Earthwork mics or is each mic qualitatively individual enough to warrant a MP?

    Cheers y'all 8)

    IMO you don't need factory matched pairs for these applications.

    Agreed, you don't need "Factory" matched pairs. However, if you're just asking about a matched model of microphones, any of the stated mics will do. FWIW, I'm glad to see you lump the GT 44 in there too. This is a fantastic mic, well worth it's price and then some. It would do quite well on all of the applications you listed and beyond.
