Yo Eman,

An expensive question, pal.

My overhead drum mikes were obtained as follows: beg and grovel to Doug Sax for two years to have him sell me a pair of his hand-made custom tube front-ends (beautifully enclosed in stock Radio Shack-type prototype miniboxes) and tube line drivers. Search for CK-1 capsules for another year; listen to C12A's and 414's until a pair sounds both good and is matched. Buy them for $2K only to remove the capsules and throw the rest away. Integrate the units. Total cost: around $15K.

Really big mics, though.

I have recently been using a pair of Audio Technica 4060's (tube) mics as overheads on drums and I'm AMAZED at how they bring 'up' the toms and the overall 'fatness' of the kit. Amazing!!

Yo Benjy,

I've never used 4060T's on OH's, but I use them alot on acoustic guitars. Pretty nice mic.

Thanks for the tip.
