Overheads mic comparison - Shure SM81, Josephson C42, Oktava MK012

Wonderful stuff, thank you for doing that.

You don't by chance have a pair of Shure PG81's handy. I've always wanted to A/B SM/PG 81's, but have never had the opportunity to.

Peace, love, and goodwill.

Nice video shootout! If you ever have a chance to A/B other mic's the Earthworks SR30 is another great candidate for an overhead.

For those who like the Oktava MK012 you'll love the sound of the Schoeps cmc641 ("love" may be too strong when you see the price).
