    I think ibleedburgundy uses this technique. Maybe he'll chime in.

    Yes, I meant thin. Typing on the phone is treacherous sometimes.

    Whatever 421 you can get ahold of will be fine. I had two u5's that didn't sound exactly the same and two 421II's. I would use them all pretty interchangeably. I haven't bought a new one since the early 2000'stages so I don't know what out at he moment.

    What I did a while back was use some side chain compression so the snare mic dips the overheads. Generally this was not a volume solution but because I wanted more tone control over the snare hit. It might work for your situation though.

    Dont forget eq. Here is a trick I use. Copy your track with the strongest snare. One one track find the frequency the snare is in. Bring that frequency down so you hear a dramatic volume change. Using your faders bring the original strong track down all the way, then bring up until you hear a good mix.
