Lives for gear
 

m/s (or x/y) behave much differently than blumlein if used as overheads on instruments with strong transients...

...but all of them lead to emphasis cymbals, gongs, bells, triangles etc. way too much imo and is why i mostly refrained from using condensers as spots at relatively large distances on percussion instruments - or if using any, attenuate hf for better matching of the sound as captured by the mains!



@ studer58 : you recently contemplated using dynamic mics for recording of acoustic music: here's a section/situation which can greatly benefit from doing so.



p.s. sorry to the op for going off topic repeatedly: cymbals and how to mic them still fascinate me...
