Ty, you didn't mention guitar in that review unless I missed it. Did you have a chance to try the 5040 on acoustic? I've been intrigued by that one since it came out. I tried a pair of Sanken's with the rectangular diaphragm once - I think Fran came over and helped me audition them. Didn't keep those, but the idea's still interesting.

BTW, I recently picked up a 4050ST, which sounds quite good to me, as well. I got it thinking it'd be convenient to have a single stereo mic for videos. More in your "mid range" category, but it does what it's supposed to do.
