I only have the one - a pair would have been sweet What about a hi-hat mic application? Its bright, its good for overheads... sounds like a hh mic! Besides, I'm most happy with my old matched pair of Km84s for overheads
* Drum room mic / overheads (paired with a M130, it makes a great M-S pair) Hope that helps a bit. Congrats on the free ribbon mic! :cool:

Absolutely - gonna play with it and get a feel for what it does. Its funny but the only ribbons i've used in a 30 year engineering career are the old RCA 44s and 77s, and mostly on horns.
Yes, you can try the M500 on hi hat. I think the M160 actually is a little better on hat, but even the brighter M500 can still sound good in that application. It really depends on what type of a hi hat sound you're looking for. Give it a try on a few things and please let me know what you think of it.

My friend Mark Pauperas - he's a tinkerer, not really a "mod pro", but he did a killer job.
Who did your Oktava mods? I've got a few of those sitting around - stock they're pretty good, and do have character that is somewhat reminiscent of the KM84.
