Also I am having a problem at my local buskers night with my cedarwood love flute.
As soon as we try for any serious volume or rich reverb it feeds back #-o would it be worth taking my RE27 (the only dynamic mic I have) ?

I looked it up at bol.com:

The Microphone Book is the only guide you will ever need to the latest in microphone technology, application and technique. This new edition features, more on microphone arrays and wireless microphones; a new chapter on classic old models; the latest developments in surround; expanded advice on studio set up, recording and mic selection; improved layout for ease of reference; even more illustrations. John Eargle provides detailed analysis of the different types of microphones available. He then addresses their application through practical examples of actual recording sessions and studio operations. Surround sound is covered from both a creative and a technical viewpoint. This classic reference takes the reader into the studio or concert hall to see how performers are positioned and how the best microphone array is determined. Problem areas such as reflections, studio leakage and isolation are analyzed from practical viewpoints. Creative solutions to such matters as stereo sound staging, perspective, and balance are also covered in detail. Recording and sound reinforcement engineers at all levels of expertise will find The Microphone Book an invaluable resource for learning the why as well as the how of choosing a microphone for any situation. It is the most comprehensive guide available, heavily illustrated with helpful diagrams, charts and equations. It is a timesaving, one-stop reference covering both microphone technology and practical tips on use and problem solving. It is written by a highly respected industry veteran and Grammy award winner.

Looks pretty interesting to me... I consider buying it.

I too have read Bob Katz book, and own a copy. It is a handy reference, covering sonic theory and issues. bob's is a strong voice decrying the "loudness war" in which the commercial music production business has become engaged. He is known best for his ability as a mastering engineer, I believe. He seems able to integrate his subject matter in a way that helps understand the total picture of what is going on. it took a couple of reads for me. Not sure what platform he favours now, but he was a Sonic Solutions guy. he still shows up now and again on a forum of Sonic Solutions users that I look at. that forum is quite technical, and SS specific. Bob's contributions are always direct, and right to the point.
