The isolation is the only selling point. I have better sounding mics for drums, like e22's.
I really don't mind bleed. With the exception of a handful of drummers over the years, bleed in the snare mics has never been a problem for me. Then I got all the FabFilter plugins and started getting a little heavier handed with Saturn and harmonically driving certain frequency areas. Really addicting, but becomes a phase nightmare with bleed sometimes. With more rock oriented drums sounds, I've been looking for some condenser options with less bleed that I can mutilate a bit more.
I was about to just order one yesterday, but wasn't all that impressed with any of the demos. If I didn't have a lot on my plate right now, I would have reached out to Lauten about doing a demo on one. I don't have any drum sessions for a month or so at least, so I might revisit this or just order one when it's getting closer to a drum session and see how it does.

Ok if you’re going to be all about the rear rejection show me real polar plots vs frequency, not some diagram of perfectly smooth cardiod! I really want to see the actual pattern, when the whole selling point is rejection.
