I remember the story bout the Possum and how it acquired its name from the one swimming laps in the pool. Just one of those things that gets in and never leaves. I also recall I had asked about the base in that thread. Search for "possum -phish" and it pops up every time.  ;)

and I still need to buy one of those bases

Not much to see here, but in the interest of complete documentation, below is a photo of the two additional miniature omnis taped to the back wall to boundary mount them about 8' or 9' apart to provide discrete surround channels.  Viewpoint is over m'lady's lovely shoulder, from the center table about 10' or so back from the stagelip.  These went unsynced into a seperate recorder at the back of the room (4060 > CA-UGLY > DR2d), the 3 stalk mounted omnis on stage were recorded to an OCM R44 via Niant PFAs.  The simultaneous recordings using the Tetramic (via Core PFAs) and ADK TLs went direct to the DR-680, synced via SPDIF to the R44's clock.

This may be a stupid question, but I've always thought the stupidest questions are the ones you don't ask. 
What do you call the mic configuration that is shown in the earlier photos, and what pattern of mics and applications would one typically use for this config?  Thanks.

My guess, assuming you are talking about the adk tl's, is XY.
With a four channel tetra-mic clamped to the top then 3 evenly spaced 4060's' for three channel LEFT-CTR-RIGHT.

I ran three simultaneous on-stage rigs last night for an instrumental trio (guitar left, drums center, acoustic bass right):

1) Three L/C/R spaced omnis, ~29" between each
2) M/S ADK TL's
3) Tetramic (basically advanced 3-dimentinal M/S)

Kinda funny, the regular monthly gig where I took the photos above was re-located for the previous month's show due to movie filming so that this poser could prance around right where I set up the mics-


Here's the newspaper article.

Don't step on my mics man!

I record a lot at a small club and run my mics (usually ADK-tl's) in a split omni fashion (but set to cardioid) in between the monitors using the sides as a sort of baffle. If I was to put them on the stage they would pickup the monitors which is not desirable. The reason for going with cardioid instead of omni is that the dancers are right there and I don't want to pick up their shuffling, farts, conversations or whatever. I also keep them low so the dancers don't smack them with their hands. I'm also creating a matrix on the fly pulling all the channels off the main board to another mixer so the stage lip mics are mainly for ambiance so this probably isn't exactly what you are looking for. BTW, mixing on the fly like that is a PITA!

Sounds like a good approach to me, Walter.

Ha, ha, they look like they could be double-mint twins.  ;)

Last night Scott Holt (10 years w/ Buddy Guy) who wasn't around when I set up looked down at one of my mics at the stage lip and said "Who is supposed to sing into that? We don't have anybody that short in the band."

yeah man,
really great player,
really great recording situations
I dig this jazz trio stuff the most
oustanding musicians
all instrumentals
vintage gear
masterful improvisations

Picking up the on-stage sound of his old '39? Gibson hollowbody with the f-holes taped up through the old Fender and the Echo-plex tape delay is sweet enough, but then the Leslie switches in and everything choruses and swirls around, the tubes in the leslie pulse brighter on each note, the upright bass rips into a syncopated solo and the drumer switches accents on the triplets.
Pure sound from the instuments.  It's a hip scene, dig?
