    Cool. Thanks for the tips. Love the Beyer M's, but never used them for rooms. Actually was kinda looking for something brighter than neutral. This for an on again/off again Appalachian string project so it's banjo, fiddle, mando, etc. Was looking for something to add a little glue and give a sense of the space-- everything is individually miked as well. That EV 635 was just too dark and the capture was more low/mid smear than blend. Great field mic from what I understand, just not right for the room. Ended up going with an AT8010, so far so good. Adds the air I was looking for and just enough detail to suggest that its actual musicians playing together-- sum of the parts I guess. Again, appreciate all the info. Best, -D
