And that, my friend, is why you are my hero!

I stopped using them many moons ago. For a while, about once a year I'd try again and would almost always confirm and, yes, I hate that fucking thing.

That is still my preferred snare mic. I try other things and get good stuff, but that mic really does it for me. And thanks as always for the kind words my friend.

I have no idea, ask madtho, he put it on the for sale board and mentioned 57 trades so I took a fly...
