    Default And what about a Flute Shoot-out?

    Hey Lynn,

    If you ever want to do a Flute Shoot-out, I volunteer to do it with you.
    And I'll bring all of my Crowley & Tripp mics.

    Is that an SM7 I see in there? Come on, Lynn, when do we get to hear the tests? I got my credit card in my hand.....

    You know there's one other test I'd like to see done alongside of the kind of test you just did. Since some people argue that position and performance are factors which invalidate such a test,...I'd suggest taking one particular mic, such as the SM7 and moving it to each of the other mic's locations and having the sax player perform for each of those locations with the one mic. Sounds boring I know,...BUT it would give you x amount of takes on the same mic, with different performances with the mic in different positions in the room. It would be like a quality control.

    Listen to how much differences there are between performances and mic positions on the same mic,...and from there you could guage how much of a factor these differences play in tests like this. Any substantial differences beyond that with all the mics in play would account for your measure of true differences between the different types/brands of mics.

    It doubles (or more) the time for your test, but I think it'd be worth it at some point, just to lessen or end the invalidation debate.

    Maybe you will be. I didn't have any C&T/now Shure mics.

    In truth, it was an "after the fact" auditioning of 8 mics to see which of the ones we liked best on sax would work well on flute. It was educational but far from exhaustive, due to time constraints.

    Cool,

    I can contribute a Studio Vocalist, A Proscenium and the Naked Eye Roswellite.

    All of these work great on flute.

    Peace.
