AKG 535 as Overhead Pair

Anyone here ever use AKG 535's as an overhead pair? I have one and am wondering how a pair would sound on overheads. Sounds ok on my Martin D28 and some female vocals. How about on a drumset?

They should sound fine. Put 'em up and see for yourself.

Back in the day, I had some good success with 535's on toms.

Cheers,

That's awesome,thanks very much. I'll proably be using as sm7 on kick but it looks like it'll be worth buying another 535 and giving it a shot on overheads. I can get one for about 190.00 dollars new.

Thanks again
