Large/Small Diaphragm for OH?

It was recommended to me to use a matching pair of small diaphragm condenser mics as OH heads....

I have also grown to love the Neumann TLM-103 as an acoustic guitar mic.

Then, I read a post with a few people saying that TLM-103's are great as OH mics.

So in short, my question is: Is there a difference with using Large & Small diaphragm mics for OH? If so, what is the difference?

BTW, they're going into an Avalon AD2022.

A bump already? Geez...

Either one works depending on what you want. Based on whta I have here I alternate between a pair of TLM 103's and Oktava MC012's based on the needs of the session.

I tend to prefer small diaphragms, unless I'm using ribbons. There tends to be less off-axis coloration.

Well, there's splitting the difference and going with a mid-sized. We've been using the Groove Tubes GT-33's and GT-44's for OH's and they're amazing. Really do a great job of picking up the whole kit.

BTW, the TLM 103 is killer on snare.
