Rule #1: Don't piss off the sound guy!
Using a beta 52a. Love the low end but not quite bright enough. This seems to be a better idea than sticking a sm91a
in the drum too. What do you think?
I work for a company that is using it now as a go to mic. I still think it depends on the drum sound itself. Its not really useful on a jazz kit with no hole. Having used it twice, I liked it. The condenser is crisp and punchy, the dynamic warm and round. nice mic but put it on a kit this past summer where it didnt cut. Went back to 52/91.
As another Beta 52a user, my first question would be where do you position your mic? That along with the drum itself will determine what sound you get out of it. The way I do it is sticking the 52 all the way in with the mic about an inch off the beater head and about an inch off center. Doing that I have always had enough low end and enough brightness. If I find it being too bright I just pull the mic back an inch or two or three. At that point it is personal preference. I have not had the opportunity to use an AE2500 mic yet but would like to, it's always fun to try "new" gear.
Check out the Sennheiser e602. I think you'll like it.
