I have a mobile Pro Tools HD recording rig. Currently, I have about very mic from AT (4040,47,50,51,60, AE5100, 5300, etc), had Shure KSM44's, 32's, etc., the standard 57's, 421s, RE20's, etc.

I need to offer high-end mics for vacation get-away recording sessions. If you were tracking a Top 40 country or rock band, knowing that you would be stuck in the boonies for a month, what mics would you say are essential? What would be your first grab?

I am also looking for a pre selection based on specific applications. I already have the clean pre's. I am looking for character pre's here.
