Geez... that's a good deal on the MXL mic.

You could also pick up a Behringer ECM8000... I think they're around $40. It's a small diaphragm omni condensor, and does a really decent job as a room mic. I use them for drum overheads. They're very, very flat (they're actually measurement mics). I can't imagine using one for the main amp mic, but as a room mic.... sure.

@Kid - What kind of PZM do you have?

I can't remember.... does Crown still make them? They got bought out by Radio Shack, who continued to make them, though with the Crown label on them... surprisingly, Radio Shack did a really great job on them, and they were still used in the pro audio circuit.

It's been so long since I've seen one, I'm just curious as to what people are using these days.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

I know it sounds crazy, but try to learn to inhale your voice. www.thebelcantotechnique.com
