Drum overhead mics

Checking in to see what you all prefer for drum overhead mics these days.

DPA-4006A’s, because I’m on a small budget and they work equally great as room mics for guitar cabinets. Thankfully I love the way they sound as overheads as well. They give me a really natural sound that I dig, doesn’t sound tampered with or have any signature sound mucking up the signal.

Good grief! Those are some serious $$$!! lol

Yeah, but I get a lot of use out of them for a ton of purposes and the frequency response is really linear. No annoying artifacts.
