I've had a pre-production copy for a few weeks now, and have been testing it, and have written one of my usual blog post write ups, with plenty of embedded audio files. Doubtless it won't quite address everything you want to know about the mic, but I hope there is the odd bit there that might interest one or two of you.

 

Cheers,

And here are a few close-up photos that I took of the MKH 8030 capsule: a couple in the blog post and a couple not. Not easy trying to get clear photos through the basket: I wasn't brave enough to pull the mic apart!

 

Cheers,
