    You'd probably do better with a matched pair of Neumann KM 184's ($1035 street) or, if you're into the large diaphragm thing, matched TLM 103's ($2125 street). But seriously, folks, Rode makes the NT-5 matched pair for about $300 the pair ($270 at Rik's). These are condenser mics, and if they're as good as my cheap-ass NT-1, they'll be great.

  3. What are you planning to use them for? Drum Overheads? Room Mics? Acoustic guitar? Don't forget that you'll need a preamp/mixer that has phantom power to use a condenser mic.
