When I worked at Shure in product development, we used to drop KSM32s to the ground and drag them around by the cord.  Then we would ask the studio owner to let us try it with their 87s - none would let us.



While I can understand the desire to drop a KSM32 on the floor and drag it around I can equally understand someones unwillingness to allow that to be done with their U87


OooooooF!

I guess I walked right into that one!

My point was about the rugged and reliable nature of Shure's design philosophy versus the delicateness of other "studio" mics.

I've always liked the shure mics, very solid and good quality sound. The only thing I drug around on the floor is the band leader one night when he started the last set with "Old Time Rock and Roll" for the 100th time!

Sorry, what can I say...it was an easy shot and I took it.

Good sense is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for everyone thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess.

One of the great dilemmas in my life is whether I would rather have a dollar for every time I've played that song or would pay a grand never to have even heard it.

I lay awake all night sometimes.

It's very sad.
