heh, I've seen you posting this a couple of times the last couple of years and it always makes me laugh......

















Because I couldn't agree more! heh

After a lot of "under-snare-mic" talk I have given it a shot now and then in the past and perhaps might try it again, but everytime I'm amazed how much it sucks. Sounds broke to me .

But then again, I've been drumming for almost 20 years so I guess I've lost my open-mindness when it comes to under snare micing....




















nah, it sucks .

Greetings,
Dirk

Am i the only one to use it on top of a snare? Anyway, that's a great price for a pair. Buy them now! As people have said they work on vox, guitar and a host of other sources. mc

However, all the points you mentioned would still apply since the polar patterns are quite similar.

BTW make sure not to get this ****ing black once (black fire or 541 in the name)!
The chrome black MD441 are the one to get.

Well this is a good one.
Am I to understand these look like 441's but without the roll-off switch and are pieces of crap??

Like the ones here?

I love the bottom snare mic when combined with the top mic...in isolation, it sounds like dog meat, but when combined with the top mic...ahhh...that's the sound!

Obviously, YMMV (but I am still right and you are wrong!) dfegad Hehe...

Well thanks for the advice (everyone!).

(Specially about that "441-mockup" I didn't know existed).

I'll interrogate the seller about this.
("does it have a bass roll off switch? " -geez, for the love of....-
