I just got the DPA SMK4060 Stereo Kit. As many of you know, these are terrific and lovely mics. I love the detail I've been able to pull from them. I have a question about using these in a handheld configuration for ambient recordings.
I read that Chris Watson mounts them on a wire coat hanger. This works really well: it spaces the mics about 40cmm, achieving a nice stereo image. Plus, the magnetic mounts that ship with the stereo SMK kit work really well. I have one slight problem with this: it seems a little susceptible to handling noise. My guess is that I'll just be more careful, but I wonder how others run the 4060s in a handheld AB configuration. Would a stereo bar with a Rycote grip work better?
Alternatively, I was thinking about achieving AB by clipping each mic on my shoulders, right/left, AB. I'm interested to see how my head/neck work as a baffle. Has anyone tried this?
