    I have a chance to buy two peaces of K2, cheaper, and I heard at this microphones are not so bad. Does anyone have experiance with K2 and is it worth to use them for any serious classical recording session?

    Your thoughts are appreciated!

    thank you,

    Bratislav :(

    I would not buy them untested.. But based on Jeremy's rave I'd surely want to test them..

    K2 for classical - it might be an interesting pair up. I certainly haven't done it yet.

    That doesn't mean I wouldn't, but given that I have numerous other mics designed for classical, I've never thought of reaching for it.

    However, I could see where it might be good. I don't know that I would use it in omni mode (which is my professed favorite for orchestral recording) but a pair of them in M/S should be quite nice.

    They do have a kinda "sheen" to them on the top end - be careful of this. Too close to violins and you'll wish you hadn't.

    I do know that they work great on cello though.
