Beyerdynamic M160

Can’t say enough good things about this mic. One of the few ribbons that is hypercardioid, it’s smooth, dark sounding and produces one of the best snare on overheads vs any mic. We love them. They are perfect for guitar cabs, hihats, cymbals, room, saxophones (brass in general) take eq very well and can take quite the punishment. Just don’t put them on a loud snare because a) you are gonna love the sound b) you are gonna break it. Trust us.
