Hmmm, so you think the XLII's would be a better choice, even for overheads.. Hmmm, I think I'm starting to like that idea. You'd say they're less nasal? AKG claims this mic excells more on solo applications, I just figured it wasn't the mest choice for my purposes, but if it sounds better, by all me...

Hmmm, another good consideration, thanks Dave.. Well, this might seem wierd, but I've been using Audix OM5's by choice as overheads and I really like them. I own a few decent LDC's and SDC's. I often use a K2 as a room mic but I've always hated it as an overhead. KSM32's have been my favorite overhe...

Cool, thanks guys, you just told me everything I wanted to hear. I would definately use the multiple patterns, and the HPF.. I mainly wanted to see if there were any valuable pro's that might outwiegh the 414's.. Glad to see there aren't too many, and I'm not a fan of bright mics.

AKG C414 B XLS vs Neumann TLM103

OK, I'm not looking for the typical TapeOp "It depends on what you're looking for" response, I'm asking anyone who has used these mics which they personally prefer and why. I don't have the option of trying these mics out in my studio before buying, but they will mainly be used as overheads. If they...

I dunno how it would sound, but if it were me, I'd do this first: Lay down an initial track with the two mics as over heads, but take the front head off the kick and remove the snare, or just place something over them to mute them; then retrack with just the kick and snare.. Who knows, but it would ...

UNDER THE SNARE!!! I've tried mine on everything, some things were usable, some really sucked.. I don't know how you guys are getting any decent results as overheads results because mine sound like tin cans up there. Seriously, under the snare, this is my all time favorite snare bottom mic right now.
