OT - I recently purchased a Rode S1 condenser mic. It's mostly for
stage use although it works great for instruments in the studio. Rode
guarantees it for 5 years no matter what happens to it - you can beat it
to death with a hammer if you want. Anyway, about the third gig I used
it some drunk staggered up to the stage during a break and knocked my
mic stand over. The mic hit the floor from about 6 feet up directly on
the ball. It sounded like someone fired a cannon. Didn't do a single
bit of damage to the mic other than denting the screen just slightly.
