    It's not really off topic. I said the room was dead and that's how I made it dead. Those gray panels are office dividers that someone was throwing away. They're 4 feet by 6 feet and they use a very absorbing Owens-Corning 603 fiberglass batting inside. I removed the screw-in feet and got some L brackets and 6 inch by 3/8 inch bolts and some 3/8 nuts from the hardware store.

    I fastened the L brackets to the wall studs and slid one end of the panel into the brackets and anchored it with the 6 inch bolts so that it can be swung out from the wall or lay flat.

    I can overlap them to expose more hard wall, or swing them out into the room to make wedges and boxes, for diffusion or isolation.

    Harvey,

    the room i record drums in doesn't have any gobos and there is some reflection. I need some overheads and this looks like to good of an offer to pass on. Do you think I can use an omni pattern if reflection is an issue?

    Well, you could throw some packing blankets around the drum set to kill some of the reflections. But you're right about this being too good a deal to pass up IF they turn out to be as good as I think they are.

    I thought about that too brutha' Gidge, but a pair @ $70.00 with a 30-day exchange guaranty, I figger' how bad can that be! I've been burned a whole lot worse (read-3630 & Behringer mixer).
    So why not add this to my slowly growing mic ensemble!

    I wouldnt hold off long, This is a sign of a buisness liquidating for bankruptcy.


    To get to the B2, Why not get that,after all Its a RODE NT2 with a differnt shell. Just check out the mics Insides.

    Interesting.
    Does this mean the B2 or whatever its called will be $100 now? That might be worth the money, too. Check it out, Harvey, you da man!
    Waiting on this 1/4 inch review...
    Peace!
    Paul

    Yea thats why I bought a B2 man producer has some in his Studio (like 3) maybe four (i think one was a MXL)
    but they all sound they same i mean some were a little noiser but nothing serious tho

    The Aust. distributors have those mics listed with a retail of $199 each. That's approx $400US each.

    AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH.............
