Lives for gear

Distilling and paraphrasing some of TF's previous on-video observations of SD condensors, one could get the impression that he tolerates them for their small size and convenience, but that they can tend to 'spit at you' (his words) and that he would prefer to use valve mics or ribbons.

That's not to say he avoids them, and indeed he's cited many top and middle rank SD mics in his arsenal...just that they're not the panacea for all jobs and situations.

Given those remarks and views, I'm expecting that these new Rodes (bearing his direct name endorsement) would transcend those reservations of short, they "really should be something special" ?

Time and field experience will, how many Line Audio CM4's could one buy for the cost of a pair of TF-5's ?
