Gauge USA ECM-84

Just got a pair of ECM-84 from Gauge USA. Quoting Gauge USA: “The ECM-84 is a small diaphragm, cardioid condenser microphone that is ideal for recording acoustic guitar, cymbals & percussion or when used in a stereo pair for drum overheads or for capturing the sound of an ensemble. […]  Its clear, natural sound & crisp presence peak make it the perfect choice for all studio, live and broadcast applications.” And the price is unbeatable: $184 for a pair! So if you are on a budget and need some great sounding microphones, you need to check them out.
