    What mic next?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I currently have 2 Shure SM-57 mics, and 2 MXL large diaphragm condensers. They're run through my Tascam US-600 interface, which can only run four mics at a time (but it does indeed have phantom power.)
    Given these four mics, what should my next purchase be? I was thinking about getting a small diaphragm condenser suitable for recording acoustic guitars. Are there any alternatives to the small diaphragm condenser? If not, what small-diaphrgam mic should I get?

    Well, that depends purely on what you want to record. If you do want an SDC, it would be wise to get a matched pair, if you can. Recording an acoustic guitar with 2 SDCs comes out really neat.

    I was actually going to suggest a matched pair of Oktava 012.

    But it never hurts to have an EV RE20 in your microphone locker!

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.
