    Would it be acceptable to use two Beyer M160's in an ORTRF configuration to record a small guitar group or chamber group? This is the only matched set of mics I have and was wondering if they would be completely useless in this environment. I am saving for a set of Schoeps but it will be some time before that money gets saved up.

    The M160's should compliment a small acoustic guitar group nicely. Those ribbons are going to need some good clean gain, however. Choose a quality micpre.

    I cannot speak to whether the M160's would make for a good main pair for other applications.
