I just bought a pair of Beta 181's for my live sound rig. I'm sure they would sound fantastic for live 2 track recordings. I'd love to hear a recording if anyone has one.

hahaha never happen, PHiSH is waaaaayyyy better the WSP

They both ain't got nothing on MMW... Money spent wisely if you ask me...


FYI, it is a kick ass recording of a bunch of pretend-a-hippies talking.

Bump.  Anyone here ever use this relatively small, inexpensive fig-8?

I'm curious about it as M/S Side channel microphone.

Thanks.  Low sensitivity, ridiculously high max SPL, relatively high self-noise. 

Seems well suited as a drum/close-instrument mic, but maybe not so much for us.  Unfortunate as there are not a lot of options this pattern/size/price category, which is why this one caught my attention.
