Here for the gear

Now a real bang for buck performer in stereo microphones is the Avantone CK40. $599

You'll not worry about it visually as it is that cabernet red color with shiny chrome grilles. Everyone will notice it.
We used StudioProject microphones once and I know of their excellent quality, extremely undervalued. But if I'd used my gray M179, it would certainly be in a horizontal position, parallel to the SDC. While the silver LSD-2 must stand proudly upright. Another time

When I'll be doing a program of 17th-century French music from around Boreaux, I will certainly reach for CK40. In this particular context, it might be a big bonus! Thanks.
