Sennheiser MKH 8020
In the last few years there's been a huge revival of interest in omni mics. From orchestral and music to location and wild life there's been a recognition that high quality omnis are one of the best tools in a sound recordists armoury. The reason is that in a sense there are only two polar diagrams - omnis and figure of eights. And everything else is a secondary construction based on these two primal polars. So Sennheiser offer one of the very best omnis availabe in the shape of their MKH 8020. With a bottom end reaching down to 10 Hz you want to be careful with these babies, but if you really need low end authority on a baby grand then form an orderly queue at the 8020 stall. Oh, and with the top end extending up to 60 KHz - you should be able to get most of Britain's 17 species of bats on tape.
