2nd Gefell M300 1 year later.. matched pair?

I decided today that I wanted a second Gefell M300 so I could do some XY ORTF etc. My local gear shop happened to have one, but was labeled 'used'. It was in perfect working order and I got a fair discount that made me happy....

I realized when I got home that the series number is actually the one before the M300 I already owned! Apparently they had ordered 2 in last year when I bought mine, and someone decided to trade this one back in....

Silly question? How close would these be to a matched pair given they were back to back on assembly? I've heard Gefell's QC and production precision is outstanding, so without 'real' analysis, this makes me think they might be at least close to 'matched'?

Thoughts?

Well, you sure could have some fun. Set up the mics side by side, hook one out of phase, then add the outputs. If you used a sweep oscillator, you could see exactly where the mismatches were and by how much.

Thanks John. I don't expect them to be perfect, but that sounds like a cool test. I just thought it was neat to get the 'brother' so to speak.

I'd call that a lucky score. Not knowing the abuse, er use that the other one saw, I would still guess that their pretty close. (total guess)

I would have expected them to be VERY close the only variable being what has happened to them over the period it's been around...
Good find though!
