Agree. Experiment with mic positions. And the final result you can
evaluate only in the context of a complete mix.

Very true. If a mic is OK, which means it doesn't distort and it has a
clean polar pattern and frequency response, you can make it sound like
any similar good one with a bit of EQ. Finding that bit of EQ may not
be obvious. But that doesn't change the simple fact that there's a lot
of myths about expensive mics and their subjective qualities, and that
most of it is nonsense.
