Peluso CEMC6 vs. Josephson C42 on Drum Overheads

Hey guys what are your opinions on Peluso CEMC6 vs. Josephson C42 on Drum overheads. I am mainly concerned with the cymbal clarity and separation. Anybody have experience with both? Music I am playing can be found at Welcome to Mantra Band Site I am looking for which one sounds "better". As a reference for "better" I really like the sound of these new drum instruction videos. They seem to have that "studio perfect" sound that I am after. I don't care which one sounds more like real life cuz who said real life sounds that great. Any side by side comparison samples would probably seal the deal for me.

Thanks Nutra. But my group is a Jazz Rock Fusion group. We play everything from bluegrass to jazz fusion to funk to modern progressive jazz rock to progressive metal. Music can be found at Welcome to Mantra Band Site. What to do? My thoughts are to get the Pelusos and get large condensors for the heavy stuff.

Get the Pelusos for the clean stuff and the atm450's for the heavy

The Beyer mc930 is ultra detailed. Talk to warren aka warhead about this.

After listening to the beyer mc930 it sounds too raw to me almost like a ribbon mic. I already have a royer r121 for that sound. I need something cleaner and I think the peluso's are exactly the mic I have been looking for. Very clean clear focused detailed, etc... I think its going to give me that "studio perfect" sound I hear from those drum instruction videos only better because I don't think those engineers know about the pelusos.

I own the Pelusos and they have a great sound, clean and not aggressive but they take very well EQ so, in my opinion they can be great for all kind of music. I also love them on acoustic guitar.
