    Hi Tim, I use both! When I'm at a nice studio like United Recorders, like yesterday, ha I was able to use a pair of U67's (God bless Germany!) but when I'm at my own studio I sue a pair of Lewitt small diaphragm condensers which sound great! Would I use expensive large diaphragm mics on the overheads if I could? Sure, but I don't have particularly expensive ones to hand and frankly I like the way the small diaphragm Lewitt's sound, they naturally don;t pick up booming so I don't have to EQ them at all! I hope that helps? Have a marvellous time recording, many thanks Warren
