RE: [OT] mic recommendations
Both Mic's you mentioned are excellent choices, the Rode being perhaps
warmer more forgiving sounding of the two and the Audio technical being
more precise, with less coloration. I own a 4050 which has two capsules and
thus a bit more versatility than the 4040. But unless you are going to use
figure 8 pattern, which I have all of twice, you probably don't need to
spend the extra cash. I think AT make great mikes, I also have a hand held
condenser they no longer make called a 4055. Mine was actually used at the
42 grammy awards, which means there is a good possibility that either
Michael Bolton or Celine Dion's spit and DNA are all over this
puppy...sweet.... I have found the 4055 an excellent mike for guitar amps
is the 4050. The 4050 sounds fantastic on acoustic guitars. I'll use it
a small condenser instead of the more typical two small condenser array.
4050 really makes small body guitars sound huge.

Subject: [OT] mic recommendations
I wondered if you guys could recommend me a mic. I'm looking at
getting a mid-range condenser mic, for general purpose use but
definitely for female vocals, cello and (to a lesser extent) guitar
>From reading reviews, I'm currently considering a Audio Technica 4040
or a Rode NT1000.
Any suggestions welcome!
