Simply Amazing

I used a pair of these when recording my sample library. They are just wonderful mics to work with. It does a fantastic job for acoustic instruments and drum overheads. I've used them for several odd jobs like recording a kick drum and vocals and they performed just fine. Just a really accurate and great sounding and low noise all around mic. If you can afford it, go for it.
