I was hoping there might be some classics that can be picked up for a song on today's market, but it seems like most of the mics mentioned in this thread would still be at least in the $300 range for a pair (if not considerably more).  If I were going to buy these to use consistently, no big deal.  But for what would essentially be a couple nights just for the hell of it, I wouldn't want to pay in the hundreds of dollars.

That said, this is an informative and entertaining thread, and I love hearing about the old days, so keep it going.   :coolguy:

What shows are you going to this summer? I was going to run P48 CP4s with probably a center ME80 (Nak 300) omni, as well as other rigs depending on the venue. I would have two ME80 cards and a MX100 available.

Just the two nights in Boulder.

Anyone know what the vertically-oriented mic is in the top photo on page 57 here? https://www.americanradiohistory.com/Archive-Audio/80s/Audio-1988-01.pdf

This article was a particularly interesting read for a new taper such as myself.

I was planning on hitting those shows also but not taping, I figured I would have fun and roam around at that one. If you're interested in borrowing some mics for fun let me know.

Just found this article again, because of this thread. Forgot I ran that Fostex mixer pictured on p60. Hid it in a box of granola to get it into Greeks  :lol: Flexible and great attitude gf got used to strapping the F1 to her thigh and her friend did the same with a beta.

The reporter mistakenly wrote that I ran Neumann TLM170s rather than KM84i, but accurate for the rest. Fun to be able to run comps in a venue with great sound.

Ended up building the black box preamps, first for the 84's, then other similar mics, and a lot of friends ran them. Covered my gear jones pretty much.
