OK, thanks. I'd expect some artifacts by having the - of the side mic shadowed by the mid mic. Like boojum, I think that rotating the whole pair 90 degrees and tucking the "side" mic behind the "mid" mic would give you "better" results, though technically you'd have some phase issues because of the difference in arrival to Mid and Side.

For reference, when I say "technically", what I generally mean is "something that disagrees with theory/physics or that you might notice on an analyzer or oscilloscope; but is either unnoticed or pleasing to the ear".
