The closer you get to the SDC microphone, the more the spit. KM184 is a good example. I agree that free-field omnis suffers less from this (the TLM170 is hardly an SDC ).

Anyhow I don't want to derail my post - my point was first and foremost that I believe TF is not only in it for the money, but that he sees this as an opportunity, to get a cardioid SDC, that he would like to use himself.
