Hello. I'm curious to know what people are using as a stereo pair of microphones for their recordings? I've been looking at the usual suspects, but was curious to know if there is any underdogs in the microphone world that are reasonably priced but do a good job?
Ideally, I'm wanting to record not only foley sounds, but sounds for me to mangle further, for recording instruments like piano and acoustic guitar etc..
I've done a lot of work with Rode NT-5s, and I think they're absolutely brilliant. I've recorded entire albums with them, they're super flexible and sound great on guitar and piano and pretty much everything else (although vocals are a bit of a stretch). Very cheap too!
