Recording is available here: http://www.nyctaper.com/?p=2482

A few caveats that I think make it not the most representative recording...

1. The band didn't soundcheck.  Therefore, the engineer had no time to get the house mix set.  The guitars aren't running through the PA, so the guitar is low in the mix.

2. I also have an SBD feed, but it's mostly vocals

3. It's a punk band and basically a wall of guitars, so a not the type of more dynamic recording that would be a better test of the mics.

I'm running them again in a few days at a show that should be more representative.

I look forward to the results, but I suspect I'll buy them anyway as I've reconciled why the frequency response looks the way it does, or at least why I think that will be ok.  :)
