    I haven't followed this thread at all so forgive if I'm speaking out of turn, but out of what you listed, I'd be tempted to use those SM81s as a main stereo pair.

    Not a problem, Lynn. You're expertise is always welcome. I did try some ideas this weekend with my Tube LCD in various patterns and positions as well as an SM81 a few inches from the bridge. There was a marked improvement in separation between violin and vocals but the instrument was still too hot in the mix. The stereo pair sounds like it could be a simple solution. I can try the pair in x-y. Or what do you think -- use one on the vocal and one on the bridge? What I would give for a good sounding, tight cardioid vocal mic. But, still paying of the tubes.

    Thanks for the advice,

    Coming back to this..

    Have you thought about using a single SM81 for the vocals and the violin??

    Set the 81 up on the opposite side from the violin, aimed more towards the mouth. If that doesn't work, bring the mic in over the shoulder so the players head is blocking the violin.

    odd have a violin player as a vocalist....

    Thanks to everyone who contributed. You've been a great help. I will give the 81 a try this weekend with stereo pair and single mic.

    Hope everyone has a good weekend,
