    Hey Chris,
    Hope you're having great recordings with your 414 & that lovely Lewitt.

    I'd just like to suggest the Cascade Fatheads might suit your future needs for recording horns.

    Stereo set of matched ribbons for under $500.

    I love love love them on horns, strings & acoustic guitar. They're phantom safe, & have a fairly high output level, so you probably won't need a Cloudlifter or special ribbon mic pres.

    Can't specifically speak to that, I've personally only used them through my AEA RPQ500 pres.

    Hope your trumpet session went well!
