    i have an audix f90 that i'm not terribly happy with. except that i love how tiny it is. i want a different sound though.

    is it a thing with small microphones like this? or are there other clip on condensors that do sound better? the f90 lacks high end definition, it's too "smooth".

    i need something that functions well for live use and also studio use. i know i know, i want the best of both worlds.

    What instruments are you using this for? I think in most cases, the beta 98 is a good bet! Love the sound of those boys on Toms. They come in a couple configurations to suit your needs.

    The Beta98 is very good for live sound.

    Two others to look for that you might dig, though I doubt you'll find them new:
    The Audio Technica ATM35
    The AKG C418

    I haven't used those two in years, but I'm thinking I might have to do a new post for you fellas with them included...
