Hey. This is our first post. We are DuoTone. We are a band in LA. We have the fortune of having Snuffy Walden be our lead guitarists father, so we go into his multi-million dollar studio whenever we he is not busy with the West Wing or other shows.
I am putting together a little recording rig at my house to record band practices and other stuff. I have a PreSonus Firepod and 3 DR-GX1's and have a SM58 for the time being. We just got the firepod yesterday. but before we had it, i had the SM58 above my kit, and a DR-GX1 on each guitar amp and one on the bass amp. I also built a bass drum rig(12" woofer into a xlr cable). Now with the firepod, i would like to get some mics.
For overheads, what should i get. I dont want to spend much money at all. I was thinking a BLUE "The Ball" for a overhead and then either a SM57 or Beta57 on the snare? What should i get? Also, for the kick, i want a Beta52 but some have said that i should get a Beta91.
As you can tell, i just want an overhead or 2, a kick and a snare mic.
