I have a chance to purchase two of these at a good price. I was wondering if anyone has tried them with the T1/L1/B1s.I won't have a chance to try them before buying them, so any thoughts would be appreciated.

I have not ever seen that one, interesting and easy mounting system, that's worth a lot!
The capsule resembles the mics I used years ago from AKG , a condenser that sounded great, but had a high failure rate if accidentally struck with a stick a few times. I never actually whacked one, but our soundguy ran sound for some metal bands too, and they clobbered them.
Since going L1, I've used the Sennheiser E604s , they sound much like a 57, but a touch brighter.
(E604 is 40-18khz.)
I bought them for the good name, and the easy mount.
SM57s and LP Claws were time consuming.
You could get a 3-pak on eBay for $299 then, and still can I believe.
If your mic is around that price, I'd try it out, Beyer is a good company.
If you remember our discussion, the Sennheisers are the ones that I ganged three together with Y cables for my snare/rack/floor toms and it worked very well.
I've been close miking my kit lately with this blues band I've been playing with. The mics I've been using aren't mine and this deal has presented itself.
The ksm27 condenser that I've been using for years works great with the jazz bands but I need more gain before feedback with this band.
The Opus 67 is a Dynamic mic that is supposed to be very feedback resistant. I'm hoping it will fit the bill.
Are you buying only one mic?
Where will you put it/them?
No I'm thinking of purchasing both of them. When I work with the blues band I only use a four piece kit, Snare, tom, floor tom and kick.
I would mic the kick with my beta 91, tom and floor tom with the Beyer mics. I wouldn't bother miking the snare as I rarely use brushes with this band and the snare cuts well enough without miking it, not to mention it seems to find its way into most of the other mics anyway.
I played a gig Saturday. I ran two sm57s and a beta 91( mic placement as described above)into my T1/L1 classic / four B1s and packlite. We had a drummer sit in and I got to walk around the room while he was playing and I have to say the drums sounded exactly the way I hear them onstage no matter where I went in the room. (Just like advertised)
They didn’t sound that much different than when I use just my Ksm27 overhead and beta 91 on the kick but allot louder.
Using the close miking approach and the hand percussion preset gave me much, much more volume before feedback.
I’m definitely sold on the three mic setup for louder venues. I just need to find two mics that fit my budget and if these Opus 67s sound good they fit that bill. At two for the price of one. I can’t buy the 57s for that.
