Hi Aaron--
I've used an MKH40/8i0 in M-S for three years hoping to land another,
used MKH80.  Presently, I'm more excited about the spatiality of
2-Rode NT2000's in a head-spaced, baffled rig (like Curt's) than the
more expensive M-S combo.
I prefer the omni pattern, but cardioid has its uses too.  This rig
is closer in imaging to the SASS and workable with side-addressing
mics. Might want to take some wood scraps and try this arrangement
with your MKH800's. Curt doesn't use a shock mount  you might be able
to get by without one.  Of course, the 8020's are a size reduction
over all of the other options, which is always an attraction. Rob D.
