I need two overheads.

Just for practice and gigging (maybe for gigging Smiley) - and I cant spend a lot.

No, real 'high-end' recording going on here, just for fun & practice

anyone suggest a cheap, decent pair of overheads?

(and yeah,yeah,yeah....cheap & decent are usually not in the same category)

??

Yes you CAN!!

Get Oktava MC12 !!
http://sound-room.com/customer/product.php?productid=103&cat=2&page=1

The microphone costs so little you will think that it is not a professional mic, and it is so good that it has been used by almost every major studio worldwide! ( I got my self 6 of them  Tongue) - you will not find ANY other similar price / value package anywhere in Pro audio...

Price ranges from $99 to $299 US

i guess i should've said a feww hundred bucks for A PAIR of overheads.

(limited budget and all, right now)

i would use them more for gigging / monitoring....

(but you have set me in the right direction) Wink

so, any more ideas in this area, let me know

disregard that last post, man i'll tell ya.....I've been trying to get by with cheap mics now for a while, and they are barely adequate for rehearsing, they definitely are no good for recording, so I will take your advise and look into some of the ones you suggested.

You have six of them.....

as overheads or specifically placed on drums (ya know in tight)....??

4 on overheads - and they are fantastic - they will give you the true tone without the artificial editions to the sound...

Personally I would've gone with the first choice (first link on your post)...

Honestly I never heard the Sure PG81... I do have one Sure SM81 condenser in my little collection, but sound-wise - I choose the Oktava MC12 cause it gives the natural sound, but between the 2 links I would definitely go with the first...

Good luck in any case, and keep us posted!

I would recomend a matched pair of SE Electronics SE1A for recording. I have never used them live though since they are quite active, but the sound will blow your mind and for a nice price to.

the Oktava MC12 that Pasha is recomending seems like a really nice choice to!

I dont think buying to cheap mics will do anything for you since they will be of no use, so count out Radio Shack:). A good mice is an investment for life. So when you have saved up, buy Shure Beta 98ds for your toms. One of those will cost as much as the SE1A pair, but in the meantime you can use the sterio pair for ewerything but the bassdrum.
