My SP-CMC-8 Hs are giving up, what's the best replacement?
« on: November 16, 2016, 05:31:29 PM »
My SP-CMC-8 hypers (AT943) have been malfunctioning lately and I need a replacement miniature hyper or super card.
I want something with a similar sound signature (i.e. clear recordings with minimal crowd noise).
What are my options?

SP-CMC-25 or SP-CMC-4U with hyper caps? Anyone has a preference for one or the other?

cheers

Yikes, I just checked the SP site and it looks like CMC-8s are backordered.
Good thing mine are still working well at the moment; I'm a big fan of the small diameter: no need for a Kangol on my tiny head :>

I really like the CMC-25's.  They're versatile and low profile...  I don't feel like I'm usually giving up nearly as much as I'd expect relative to my A-rig.  If it has to be 007 I'm totally fine with running the 25's. 
Gear:
Audio:
Schoeps MK4V
Nak CM-100/CM-300 w/ CP-1's or CP-4's
SP-CMC-25

Oade C mod R-44  OR

The MM-HLSC-1 is probably my least favourite of the small mics I own. Not as nice as the SP CMC-8H if you ask me.
