    I was given a pair of MG MV692/M71 mics to use (if I choose) for an upcoming choral / organ / piano / brass gig.

    I'm not interested in debating spaced omnis vs coincident pair for this sort of recording - I respect the differing opinions on this aspect of choral recordings - and I will be using a coicident (or nearly) for this recording.

    I would like to find some information on what this mic sounds like and if it is a viable candidate for this recording - if not as the main pair, I need to mic a piano and a brass section as well.

    These are excellent mics. When you borrow them, "steal them" and then sell them to me. :twisted:

    Just kidding.

    Seriously though, these are great mics. I wouldn't put them up there with MG's best mics, but they are every bit as useful as the Neumann 18x series, but with the interchangeable caps. These will work beautifully on piano or distance vocals. They would not be my first, second, or even third choice for close/solo vocals.
