So I bought the elam251 clone. Used it with a female singer. She liked it. I liked it. As I at a couple of pattern-steps towards omni from cardiod, her chest opened up, and all this huskyness came out and it was beautiful. Then I tried it with drums in another session. toms were good, brass was silky - pretty. The fig 8 pattern sounded yuk because snare was peaky not meaty. Cardiod was ok to good but snare sounded boxy. In all patters the kick had no low end at all. it was just not there. all 160 hz - yet this did not show on the response curve. So, I'm confused. Frankly, it sounded like s**t on the low end, and like heavan on the high end. Typical? Also, VERY CLEARLY, it needs to warm up for 1/2 hour. I thought this would be a subtile difference like the difference but it was quite dramatic. Do I have a normal Peluso? Feedback?
