"Best SDC Pair Under $2,000"
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.

Whatever pays the bills. Usually rock and pop type bands.
