Yes, we experimented with it. If we pulled the microphone forward the stand started to tip over. In all cases the sound seemed boxy. Maybe it would be less so with other mics and directional patterns. We did not try different microphones. As Jim said, you can try both and return the one you think works less well. You might even be able buy a PVB at GC on special order and still return it. Ask them.
