If I were a mfr, in any economic climate...not just the current shattered one...and I had the choice of spreading my product's sales across a variety of potential buyer niches, rather than just a single relatively restricted and curated one (even if the latter was the declared initial target, through TF's involvement, guidance and endorsement), I think I'd run with the more diverse, spread the love and risks, buyer base ?

To artificially curtail sales, by creating an air of a niche specialist product, has to be counterproductive. The mic's high purchase price points in that direction (ie it not being a generalist mic) already....not to forget that in today's scrambled/decimated usage landscape, there are likely to be more small-scale video studio music events being filmed, than 60 piece orchestral sessions and concerts !
