I use this pair of microphones on vocals, cello, guitar and plan to use them on upright and grand pianos after confinement. I find that they capture sources beautifully, with excellent balance and width, as well as gorgeous clarity and detail. My immediate impression following my first takes: clear/smooth highs, full-bodied mids and tight/clear bass. I hesitated for a long time between the OC818, AKG 414, Neumann 103, Neumann 107 and several other models. They are all very good microphones, but numerous online tests made the OC818 a clear winner for me and I am very happy with my choice. This pair doesn't come in a case. If that's important to you, consider buying two separate OC818 mics or contacting AA if you want them out of the factory as a stereo pair in cases. My advice is to listen to a lot of tests of this model and comparable microphones - take breaks and keep coming back to the tests until one model consistently sticks out as your favourite. I strongly recommend the OC818.
