    My favorite 'budget' set-up for recording OH's that will give me high-end sounding results is a pair of Rode NT1-A's (roughly $460) through a pair of Neve 511 pre's (roughly $1100). Yes, this is about $1600 total, but you could only buy ONE Neumann at that price, so I consider it "budget". 🙂 I absolutely loathe low-end boominess on my OH's, so the Neve 511's variable HPF (up to 250hz!) works GREAT for me!
