If you're on the "other forum" you may see this posted there as well. So sorry for the redundancy...
Let me know what you think. Hopefully I gave both mics a fair and accurate depiction with the resources I have.

This was a direct A/B comparison, but in my little experimenting yesterday, I think these two mics could really compliment one another. I was getting some really nice sounds by putting the SM57 directly centered on the cone, and putting the Beta on the edge of the speaker. Kind of a nice, blended balance...And the fuller, airy-er sound you'd expect from "stereo" recording.
