I bet those Omni8 condensers are bloody lovely......

Speaking of which, who here has one? Last I heard (2 months ago) Mark was still fine tuning these.

I have them They sound really nice ... very gentle and musical ... None of that condenser harsh touch that can be heard sometimes ... I recorded violin on them on this video:

Gorgeous recording! My understanding is that Mark redesigned the capsule sometime in late summer/early fall of 2018 - is this the old or new capsule?

It is with the old ones. I have both versions here and I personally prefer the older ones - more gentle and slightly less focused ... They totally replaced Schoeps (after so many years) for recording strings ...

They can be also heard here (the track Reconciliation): SILENTIUM
