the N72 are the ones i use least, but they are good for toms with their dial-able grit. Do the N72s have output attenuation to dial that grit against? I ask because the A12 has no control of output-vs-input which kinda bummed me out. As the owner of some other Neve clones I realize how key that dia...

Slightly off-topic I gotta say it's really awesome and inspiring to see how having a rack 'o' 7th-circle pres can enhance the choices one makes in mic'ing a kit! I just got started in that world myself this year (only one A12 right now) and your post really gets me all fired up to build some more!

Yeah dynamics are not the usual choice with their grit and girth, but they are totally under-chosen for some of those tasks where people normally reach for the sparkly sound like overheads AND acoustic guitar and I say fuckin' go for it. Another good dynamic choice might also be an SM7B. They have a...

As opposed to "that's good enoug...

Adam was most helpful in showing me the ropes and basically "making me" do all the patching, running of cables, console knob twiddli...

Dude, how did you know I was such a huge Tad Donelley fan? (Know what I'm sayin'?) Dude, who isn't these days? He's a Mutt Lang. He's got a couple of hits out there. He's feelin' good. I get much more joy from Tad Donnelley than I do from Mutt Lange. From what I hear so does Shania, but if you only...

It's ok to sound thin and nasally, just ask Neil Young.
No it ain't. Just ask Billy Corgan.
I just swallow a SM-58 and sing into my gullet.
I just swallow some Monster Energy Drink and sing into my mullet.
