RE: making field recordings

You should check out the DSM  mics:


Used these for field, concert and currently for drum overheads. Fantastic
response and dimensionality, such that it still makes me jump (eg there's a
car coming through my wall!) when I hear things recorded on them, as they
reproduce the 3d space so well.
