MC930's are Magical Microphones!!!The Beyerdynamic MC930 mics are just amazing. I have a nice collection of small diaphragm condensers including Neumann KM184's and vintage AKG 451EB's. I've been in the recording biz since 1969, just to let you know. I never would have considered buying the MC930 if I hadn't been totally taken by surprise by an acoustic recording that had me stop in my tracks and say "wow, that sounds soooo good, what mics were used?" I was informed the MC930 was used. Since then, I've auditioned a number of recordings from chamber and classical to alternative folk and rock, for which the MC930's were used and they all just sounded sooooo good!!! These things sound great on anything, have nice pad and roll off switches, and have a remarkably hot output. Best of all, they are incredibly affordable for such a high quality German made microphone. Get 'em, you won't be disappointed!!!!!

One of the best kept secrets in the sdc worldThese things sound way more expensive then they actually cost. The detail is just perfect, and the high end seems to go on forever without it ever getting strident or harsh. As drum overheads they can handle everything from jazz to metal, and as a stereo pair on my acoustic they bring out all the detail and warmth you could ask for. I rarely have phase issues when using them in stereo, and they also take eq very well. I'll put these up against way more expensive mics any day. I wish they had interchangeable capsules, but as a dedicated cardioid pair, I couldn's ask for more. Thanks Sweetwater.
