I would like to know the maximum input sound pressure levels for the following mics I own. SM57, SM58, SM7. I am having trouble recording an acceptable for crash cymbals closely miked. This info could help me select the correct mike's.

In general, condenser mics are used for cymbals due to the better transients response of the condenser element. Consider the SM81; the KSM141; the KSM141.
