The omni-directional MKH 8020 is ideal for recording large and small sound sources, for a "Decca Tree" or for use in an OSS "Jecklin Disk" array. As it does not suffer from a proximity effect, it is also a good choice for close-miking. If the acoustic ambiance is right, this microphone will provide very impressive recordings. The extra octave at the bottom end makes the MKH 8020 perfect for recording pipe organs, grand piano and acoustic double-bass.

Belgium electronic rock band, GOOSE, has a fanbase that spans Europe. 2020 marks two decades of success and also the tenth anniversary of their second album, Synrise. To mark the occasion, and to give their fans something special in these challenging times, GOOSE collaborated with Sennheiser and Belgium’s PXL University of Applied Sciences and Arts to produce an extraordinary binaural recording and mix of the album’s title track.
These are fantastic microphones, will be using them every time I record an appropriate source!
I would recommend these microphones, probably the best microphones that I own.
CONSUMER ALERT FOR WIRELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEMS
Most users do not need a license to operate a wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating a microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCC’s wireless microphone website at www.fcc.gov/cgb/wirelessmicrophones
