really impressed with the result, I own one of these mics myself, and am probably going to use it on hihats or undersnare with the pad on

Well I was looking at these mics but I wasn't so sure about them because of the price... But now I'm sold. I reckon they'd work just fine as drum over heads too

Horay!

Great!

Sorry for bringing this one back from the dead. The Mics sound great for the money, can't really pick fault at that price point. More importantly the playing was great, I seldom listen to a sample track all the way once Iv'e got the gist but that was a pleasure. Cheers

I love the sound on your recording! Really great playing, especially. Noone records this kind of salsa flavour normally for this kind of thing, so thanks for making it sound musical and not so stale! THe mics are great, much much more than you would expect from both small diaphragm and at this price. Will atempt to record my own piano, an old upright piano. Also have plans for sampling it for later computeruse. If anyone is interested in listening and trying out in kontakt or exs24, let me know.

Otherwise I have only tried Studio Projects B1 (warm and maybe too big sound) and the Samson C05 which has a great sound too, but a bit to high noise. At least through the cables I used, which were klotz with neutrik, so should be ok.

THese mics you used are probably better for piano, but I wonder:

how do you interpret the axis-coverage? Is it extremely wide or ok for point microphone stuff?

I would love to get my hands on some more samples if you have some! I am about to buy 6 of them, so would be nice with some more info. Especially regarding the noise level...

Thanks.

Hey Sticazzi, sounds great. Nice playing.

What was the rest of your signal chain? Preamps? Recording interface? What kind of piano are you playing?

sc140

Sounds fine, sticazzi75!

I bought pair of sc140 myself, I used that on small orchestra recording. I was limited with my mic stands, I wasn't able to put them high enough to be closer to orchestra (the overal sound is blurry). Microphones are AB (ca 3 meters away from orchestra) with one extra microphone for choir (alctron hat800). I put them directly to Tascam DR680 (Busman mod). The result surprised me - it's not bad at all! Although I wouldn't recommend them as main mics for this kind of recording, I would definitely use them for wind section or something similar.

This might be the best mic demo I've heard. Hah. Interested in these mics too as drum overheads. I was wondering how they compare to the same brand's EM700 and the Superlux S241.
