microphones for my new metric halo ULN-8

I just got a metric halo ULN-8.

i am now a step closer to realize my dream of a mobile recording rig able to record acoustic (classical chamber) music with really high quality. But i need to find the right microphones with it. I am going to buy 2 matched stero pairs. I do allready have a millennia 2b stereo preamp and a matched stereo pair of dpa 4003s.

Any suggestions? I am probably going to need something very transparant?
Or should i maybe get something a bit eccentric to build an own sound fex the coles 4038 for brass, woodwinds and percussion? Or maybe continue with dpas?

Anyone that could give some advices what to search for? Would be much appreciated.


Price is not an issue, but i cant imagine i can justify buying microphones very much more expensive than dpa 4003s. Or maybe i can?

Schoeps are a great alternative to DPA in small diaphragm

Brauner for large diaphragm are very detailed fast and clean

Check out the AEA R88, one of the most beautiful large soundscape ribbon for things like ensemble or piano
