I went on-line sometime ago to find out as many micing techniques as i could for recording drum overheads, mainly for small diaphragm condenser mics . i came across and tried out , spaced pair, XY , mid side , mono and last but not least ortf mainly using my sure pg 81´s . I can get good sounds from all of these positions and from time to time like to vary it ... that is until i purchased the superlux s502. now this is my go to O/H technique, it´s very easy to set up without having to guess the angles and spacings and you get a great sound ( with a little height and distance adjustment) every time ! Good mics.

Remarkable stereo mic

I bought this to see if it was a worthwhile improvement on the 2 x Oktava MK012 condenser mics that had been using for choral recording. I'm happy to advise that it is and has all the open, airy definition of the Oktavas but is just so much more convenient to set up and use.

The only problem I have experienced is that once I had a "frying" sort of noise from one fo the capsules, when I first set the mic up. This disappeared after 30 minutes or so, and I've put it down to dampness in the capsule perhaps after it'd been in storage for a while. I now keep it in a sealed container with a bag of silica gel (dessicant) to keep it dry, and have had no further problems.

It absolute quality terms it's probably some way short of the Shoeps that has obviously inspired it, but for less than a tenth of the price, you're certainly getting more than a tenth of the mic. Highly recommended.

Nice microphone for all stereo recordings!

First I hoped, that you could have turned the capsules in the end of the shaft, but after using the microphone in the first recording (choir) I realized, that the factory set angel is perfect and doesn't need any own configurations. Have been using this microphone to record and amplify choirs, classical orchestras, theater-plays and even acoustic guitar. The microphone has never let me down! Really low noise level with a really wide dynamic range! Rubber-shockmounted mic clip is also doing it's thing and working well!
