My wife always wants me to use my black mics for recording her piano, as she says it matches her black piano ...

That's easily fixed with a big can of silver spray paint. :beamup:

But it doesn't always have a silver lining ... then you have to swallow the (silver) bullet ...

wellll... the Gemini's blue/green and my SE2200 is matte black. Kinda makes sense to add a silver 102 to my collection the more I think of it :roll:

Plus, for a mic as small I want it to stand out as much as possible to be fair. I think the size of the tlm102's are inconspicuous enough. I want people to at least notice it when they walk in :lol:
