Overhead: Josephson C42+Portico 5012 vs. Beyer MC930+DAV BG-1

Josephson C42+Portico= 2000$ at Sonic Circus
Beyer (1000$)+ Dav BG1-u (900$)= 1900$

Need a quick decision. Please vote

def. Beyerdynamic mc930 !!! +

used A-designs MP2a
used Aurora GTQ
used Pair of Siemens V72´s (or V76´s obviously if your rich!)
used Chandler TG2 (depends if it fits the sound/room/kit for OH)
(maybe used A-designs Pacifica, never used it on drums before though, just a thought)

cheers tom

Funk, Jazz, pop, Rock, heavy metal.....?


The Josephsons are very accurate.....

I don't have large collection of mics and preamps, so maybe i'd rather go for the more solid and less certain color option.
I will be using it mainly "old school" rock and jazz overheads. Perhaps acoustic guitar as well.

I wanna buy it next week. So any opinion and vote will help me.

Definately the Portico. You will not regret buying this.
I've heard the Josephson's are very nice...

Any more opinions which will suit me better?

DAV does not particularly excel in fast transients and punchiness ... It is rather slow and "syrupish" ... nice ... but maybe not ideal for drums ..
