How well do a pair of unmatched 4033's work for xy

Thinking about getting another 4033a to go with the one I got for xy miking. Will it matter that they're not matched?....regarding possible phase issues in mono?

These days mics that undergo consistent quality control during manufacture tend to match up. I never worry about it with quality mics and it never seems to be a problem. However, you may find more variance in the proliferate chinese aftermarket mics out there.

AT mics are very consistent. I would make sure ya get the same 4033 tho. I think they stopped making it and released that one again. If I remember correctly. I have 2 myself I purchased at once tho.

You'll be fine. Phase issues would be due to where you put them.

You'll probably be fine, although I have four 4033 microphones and none are exactly alike. I hear most subtleties in their noise floors, high frequency response. Their output can differ a few decibels between microphones, but that's easy to fix.
