I love my Busman stereo kit and have been very pleased with the results of the few shows I've taped so far.  I prefer the sound of mine paired with my Busman modified UA-5 over the recordings I've heard with just the Busman mics > various recorders.  Also love the sound of these mics paired with a V2 or V3.  Would I like to have a pair of AKG's?  Sure.  But for the money I don't think you can beat them imo.  I listened to a lot of recordings on the LMA before making my purchase and I feel that Busman makes a solid product.  Looking forward to getting the caps modified as soon as possible.

Without getting deep into the hows whys and whens, I would like to chime in and say that I am more than proud to share my Busman BSC1 recordings.  I think they are a great sounding microphone, at any price range.  Second, Chris Johnson has been a pleasure to deal with, and a fine example of the extra mile that a customer gets so rarely today.  He is proud of what he does, puts his reputation behind what he builds, and stands by the product.  You can't ask for more than that.

This is a fine example of what I routinely pull with them, my most recent recording of Umphrey's McGee at HOB, Boston.  the K3 hypers have quickly become a favorite cap for me when not stage lip.  The K11 cards (new version of the K1) have a crisp, clean neutral sound in my opinion, that I have also grown very proud of.  This is the K3's, from behind the board.

I also have a Busman modded PMD-660.  Chris essentially did this mod to better match the mics with my deck, due to the op amp issues prone to the Marantz units, for far below what a routine mod would probably cost, due to the fact that he is both customer satisfaction driven, and knew that the deck would be the weak link in the rig.  I have followed his recommendations on this, and the results have led me to a simple conclusion:  I trust Chris Johnson to make the best recommendations and decisions for my recordings and gear, without question.

I know this sounds like a PSA for Busman Audio, but I am one of the very satisfied and happy customers, and there are many of us.  The Doug Oades, Steven Sanks, Chis Church and other sound gurus of the world ave very similar customer reviews, too.  That is the beauty with going with the more intimate professionals with a PASSION for audio.   

In the case of all gear, especially mics, let your ears be the judge.
