    In case you guys and gals haven't seen the press on this one:

    http://www.royerlabs.com/SF-24V.html

    It can be yours for the low price of $5K!

    I'm foaming at the mouth until I get to try (and hopefully buy) one!

    Alice, As someone who has been in college since 1975, I can assure you that it is vastly overrated....




    Not workin...



    Note: Just to clarify - they have been paying me since 1979. It's the me paying them part that I don't like so much.

    Their single version is close to $3000 so that's a bargain. You might need a pair for surround? Now you just need to record somebody who's worth 1 million in talent. You might want to record Sir Paul at FedEx field?? Why not give him a call?

    Think of all the SM57's you could buy?

    You'll be foaming at the mouth more if you hear one... It is a *very* impressive mic.

    What's so special about it? How does it differ to the SF24? I love my SF24, now almost exclusively used for choral miking.

    I can't tell you from a sound perspective. Have you tried the AEA R88 for chorus? While I love the SF12 on most everything else, to me the R88 wins in the group vocals department.
