Whats the best Boundary Microphone for OH?

Hi there,

my drumroom has a very low ceiling. I heard people saying that in this case they prefer to use Boundary Microphones for OH's. Which PZM do you suggest for this application?

Audio Technica U851A is a useable mic, I am sure other gearslutz will have other models, but it is fairly cheap and has good responce/clarity, are you thiking of putting these on a low ceiling? for use with drums, i tend to use mine (if im using them for "bigness") a good distance from the kit, 15-20 feet, ive never put them one the ceiling, BUT on the floor to the direct left and right of the kick, like 5-8 inches from the shell, stereo, that works really well on a tight groove when blended lightly with the other mics.
