"Best SDC Pair Under $2,000"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
These mics are a stupid good value. I don't think you can do better for twice the price. The frequency response is very flat, with just a smidge of added air on the top end. They have ridiculous low end extension for a small diaphragm condenser. They're more like an LDC in how deep they reach, but without losing that SDC speed. Speaking of speed, the transient response on these mics is very, very good.These guys work well on everything. Overheads, hi-hat/ride, snare, toms, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, even vocals with a pop filter. The switchable polar pattern is also very convenient. No switchable capsules to loose or break. If you're going to only buy one pair of SDCs, I don't think there's a better choice than these anywhere near the price point. They're very versatile. The case and stereo bar if you buy the pair are also very nice.I typically use these as overheads live, either in cardioid or omni depending on the genre, room and stage volume. They're built like tanks and hold up well to the rigors of the road.

Sound
This is one of the few microphones that I have used that work excellent on both the kick and snare. A friend brought a pair of these to a drum session, we experiemented with the KSM141 and the Microtech Geffell M930 witch ended up not being able to handle the snare. Positioned the Ksm 141 aproximatly 10" from the kick, in hyper-cardiod pointing twards the beater. Excellent response with no eq. After switching the out the Geffell, we found the preformace equally pleasing on the snare, I was impressed by the KSM141 completely.
Features
Large diaphram bass response + high spl handling of a small diaphram, very impressive.
Value
I'd say its one of the best condesor all-around instrument mics available.
