I am in need of a new set-up and looking for some help and advice..... I am trying to stay as basic as possible..... I am more of a high end guy than a low end guy..... Usually use Hypers but I am feeling the loss of the low end more and more....and want to address this.....

I am running R-44  > MBHO' s 603a KA 500......

Looking at Neumann KM 150'S ........

BUT ....... Not sure....... Any help or abuse is appreciated...

The MBHO hypers have a nice tight low end but it is little more lacking than some other hypers. I like the Schoeps MK41 for hypercards - I think they are the best on the market - especially with the Nbox they have the thump.

Not a big fan of the KM150 but I really like the AK40 cardioid caps. Since you have a 4 channel recorder maybe try switching up your game and run both cards and hypers from the same position for a few shows and see what you like more.

Goodcooker,
Thanks so much for reaching out..... Been afraid of the Nbox due to the change in sound..... The low end is almost too much for me at times if that makes sense..... I liked the old analog sound and dynamics.... and try to stay away from the boxiness of digital even though it sounds better and is cleaner....... So I am looking for something with a little more low end response..... or a different way to enhance the MBHO's ..... ..or I will take mic suggestions.... lol...

Microtech Gefell M21 or Milab VM-44 Link (supercard) are both great sounding options!

hot licks > microphones > recorder
