For the record, I prefer #1 from that location/config.

Thanks for the details C.
So the V1’s are Omni in ORTF?

Would love to hear a comp of V1 hyper and MK41 in same config if you ever get a chance.
Is that A-Bear??.. I haven’t heard him in a while.. great stuff!

Edit: sorry I was confused by your first post.. are the V1 caps hyper in comp?

Actually, those are the V1 hypers and the mk41s, both ORTF.

I've used the omni caps when doing OMT4, but thought it'd be most informative to make this comparison w same caps.

Yes, music is A-Bear and Friends. The placement and aiming is unusual, but over time and lots of shows w various A-Bear bands, I've found it works well and reduces audience noise considerably.

I've been staying w Dave and fam for a couple weeks of shows ahead of TTB Red Rocks tonight and tomorrow. Been lots of great music and a great opportunity to learn and improve technique.

Cheers

Sample 1 seemed more brittle in the high-end, Sample 2 felt more balanced and un-hyped, with clean/detailed transients. I don't know anything about the Vanguard caps but would guess #2 is Schoeps.

Many thanks, all!

Sample 1 is Vanguards. Clem nailed it.

Pleased with their performance, now I'd like to compare the other caps w appropriate mics.

I'm impressed with the Vanguards. I wonder what those lollipop capsules sound like?

CK1, CK22, CK8, CK63 > 460b

A friend in the Bay Area uses them in his studio, likes 'em for close micing acoustic instruments and vocals.

Late to the party, but I guess I like presence because before I read the reveal I immediately and 100% liked 2 better.  Crazy!

I'm out of the loop, so apologize if this has been covered, but has there been any comparisons between the Vanguard V1 and Avantone CK-1?
