RPC360 thanks for including this paper. Great reading.  Schoeps has generated a lot of data in this field as all their capsules are single diaphram.

That’s correct, aluminum diaphragm.

Shure uses a passive rear diaphragm to tailor the proximity effect on several of their cardioid microphones (KSM8, KSM9, KSM42). They have a paper about it at  http://www.shure.com/publications/us_pro_dual_diaphragm_paper_ea.pdf. Dr. Fouxman seems to have accomplished something similar with his "frequency dependent screen." (I don't care how many equations you use, transducer design is still black magic in my book!)

Thanks for the link, it's amazing read.

I got a sample of the Samar capsule with the 49c-type circuit on cajon that I still need to upload. To me, it sounds a little boxy; because it is! Low-end as tight as can be!

By the way, in this studio, with the Tannoy soffited mains on (as opposed to the nearfields), I again got major low-end feedback with the mains louder than “low”; just as I did on the ATC mains in the studio I usually work out of.

Also going finally get vocals on both the 49c-type and 37a-type next Sunday; if all goes as planned!

Great paper in the link there. 

I'm liking what the manufactured Samar / Omni8 TF08 delivers in my tests so far. 
Best,
