2 bodies 3 capsule choices shocks and cables cost less than new 184's and smoke them. Great deals on these now.

Well I got the pair used for $800, so the master set is still twice as much, but I get what you're saying.  I guess it came down to I've always really like the sound of the 184's, to my ears they most closely represent what it sounded like at the show, so I was afraid that I'd buy the M60's and still want a set of 184's.  Maybe with next years tax refund I'll do the master set, but I'm just getting back into taping after 15 years and I'm trying to not go overboard.



For that price I would have also went with the 184's. I myself want a pair but now have MG bodies/actives and the M60's I don't know when I would use them.

Another M60 source for you all. I ran the Hypers again since they were on the bodies and I ran out of the house to make the show.
Will try and use the CARDS next time out if the situation calls for it.

Decided to give the M60 a go and ordered a stereo pair.  Main use w/b drum overheads, some acoustic guitar, and interested in trying on cajon.

For those of you who've used the M60, any advice to share that might be an out-of-the-ordinary discovery?

I really like the hyper caps in my set, I use them more often than not. I find them closer to a super card than hyper, they are very full sounding yet do a great job of rejecting the junk in the room. It's my go to cap in the rooms I tape in unless I'm on stage. I imagine the fet set up will be the same since it's the same cap with the fet body vs the Tubes. Hope you get yours soon so you can share your thoughts.

Yup i use the hyper caps about 90% of the time with my 260's indoor, outdoor..whatever.

Serious question would you use your hyper cards only 15 or 20 feet from the PA?

I snagged FICKE's 260's, run them 2x's have not tried the other cap's......looking for feedback.

Depending on the room I would definitely use my hyper's at that distance. I prefer the hyper's because I rarely tape outdoors or in nice sounding rooms. Distance to the PA isn't as much of a factor to me where the shape of the room, the location of my mics relative to the sound source & chatty audience's is.
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.

Yup id run them that close.  Just ran them at the El Rey here in LA with the hypers.  The room is kinda of long rectangle.  Came out great..

^ thank you most of my rooms r odd shaped & not the best location to tape from, I try the hypers next outing!

Do I "lose" reproducing the low end vs. cards and do you all use windscreens indoors to reduce ambient (talking) noise?

I good supercardioid, like the ones you use, should still have plenty of clean low end.  The supercardioid tends to pick up less room reverberation, so cardioids are more "full" sounding, but that can be a good or bad thing depending on the room.  Windscreens are needed to prevent wind noise/ HVAC, they will not help filter out the talkers.

Ran my set for the first time this past weekend for Motet/MMW/Vulfpeck at Red Rocks. Will have to wait until I get back to NOLA to post these, but listening back to them, they sound as good as expected.

(oh, and scored a Masters Stereo set on Reverb.com for under $1,100- it was an open demo from Sweetwater, used for their YouTube videos about a dozen times).
Mics:          Telefunken M60 Masters, ADK TL
