Technique is of huge importance as we all know, but if you HAD to choose just 4 utility mics to work with for the remaining projects you will ever have, what would you choose? They can be stereo pairs.

It would be my pair of C12As, an SM7, SM57 and a pair of Coles 4038s.

I've heard of people removing the windscreen on an SM58 to get a more SM57-esque sound, since they share the same capsule, and I have a couple SM58's. Would you agree that just removing the windscreen would be good, or should I just buy a 57?

I've been hearing a lot about an SM7, and I'm probably gonna invest in one along with a mid-range condenser or two. Any suggestions? I've heard a lot about AKG's mics, and I like the idea of multiple polar patterns.

Thanks for replying Eric, its just Gearslutty knowledge to know what other peoples die-hard mics would be.

I am not EV, but I can certainly suggest a couple of things.

You after small or large diaphragm? Also, what sort of applications are you looking to use these mics.
