Ever thought about modding a 421 with the element 90 degrees off? That way the face of the mic screne could be the direction of the mic's element?
This mic is still a great tom mic, but I hate placing them on toms becuase of how far up they stick. If a drummer keeps his cymbals low, then you can hardly get the mic in where you want it. If the element laid flat, you could place the mics a lot easier.
Maybe even an adjustable direction on the element.
Hello Bill! Nice to see you on here. My RCA 74B you re-worked is doing really well. Thanks for your great work!
Have you reviewed tha Peluso's P-12's or taken a look inside? I'm curious if they're made with the typical chinese parts, or they are quality. They are cheap if they sound anything like C-12's (which they claim, but I've not verified since I don't have any C-12's laying around).
