Pairs and more of original U87i, AKG condenser mics, Rode NT1, Line Audio help fill the picture in, along with kit such as a dozen Beyer M69s for other purposes.

Then there are lots of radio mics around for various purposes too. Monitoring is all BBC Grade I of various vintages/complexions from 1979 to 2020 and is arranged in Surround to Dolby spec (using the speakers they used to derive it). Even our OB monitoring is to BBC Grade I spec.
Not for hire! Much of this is vintage kit since it sounds best and must be kept in top notch condition to be reliable, so we don’t let it out of our sight or hearing.
