Cheers DY for the advice. The AKG 414 would be great id say. the room i have is about 14 foot by 12 foot and about a 9 foot ceiling and its all wooden. Not the best room but not the worst. I guess all I want is a pair that will as you say pick the sound that I hear in the room out. The AKG would be a good bet for this I guess. I was also thinking maybe the Neumann KM184 pair as an overhead?

I dont get to borrow much or try out much because im right in the southern tip of Ireland and dont have access to these big guitar centres you guys have!!!!

Nice one for the info.
