    I'm in the market for some budget overheads mics. Looking to spend no more than $500 for the pair. They'll be used mainly for rock and blues music. I've got my eye on a pair of the Shinybox 23C's but the figure-8 pattern worries me cause my drum room ceiling is only 7.5' (2.28m). Do you think I could get away with it if the ceiling is treated for early reflections? Or do you think a figure-8 is out of the question?

    Low ceiling + figure - 8 = problems.

    Look on ebay for a pair of Oktava MK012s or MXL 603s. You'll thank me.
