No prob!

The SM7 on hat is an... unexpected choice.

The MD421 is great for anything you'd otherwise think about using a 57 on - toms, guitar cabs, etc. It just sounds.... beefier. It's a...

Haha. I have a mic that pretty much sounds like that by itself.

It's an AKG D50 or D80 or something. I'm pretty sure it's broken.
