I picked up the special on MF's Stupid Deal of the Day the other day. I haven't gotten them yet, but I will let you know once I have them.
The specs aren't very clear on these mics and nothing too detailed was listed on either MF or Sterling Audio's site. These are probably simply okay mics, but I thought they might be good as either a giveaway to up my studio karma or as mod fodder.
The SP 50 looks like a medium diaphragm, much like the MXL 990's smaller diaphragm capsule in a full sized mic body. I may have been better off going for the ST 51/ST 31 combo for $199.99 US, especially considering the bump in quality and the inclusion of shock mounts.
I should have them by this weekend and can give a little test and maybe some pics to inform everyone else. I knew I was taking a chance on these, but for the money... why not?!?!?
