For live use perfect

16.07.2014
For a set of live overheads I cannot see why you would spend more money.

Sure these are not the best studio quality sounding mics in the world but they do everything you need for live use.

They are solid metal bodies and even have replaceable capsules should they fail (mine never have) they come with a nice carry case and mounts to connect them to stands, they also come with wind shields in the box.

I have marked the sound as 3 stars as I could not see myself using them to record, they are not detailed enough but for live drums they are absolutely spot on.

Nice overhead mikes

21.09.2015
We just recorded a demo with our band. We opted out out renting a studio as we would have to spread the recording sessions out over a longer period, so that meant getting our own stuff for recording.

We used this matched for recording drums using the "Glyn Johns" method. We had a mike on the kick drum, an SM58 on the snare and then we used one of these as an overhead pointing down at the snare, and the other positioned to the drummer's right, above the ride and also pointed at the snare. Doing it this way we managed to get some very good drum recordings even using budget gear.

When recording guitars we also used one of these at around 50 cm distance from the guitar cab off-axis in combination with a microphone right on the grill, approximately 8-10 cm off-axis as well. This also yielded great results.

Finally, we used one of these when recording a western guitar. We had a large diaphragm condensor directly in front of the sound hole and one of the Samson microphones positioned in front the 5th fret pointing at the sound hole. Balancing those two signals out gave as a very nice acoustic guitar recording.

I think what I like most about these, is that they haven't got the exaggerated high end that is common with cheap condensors. Recommended
