    Yo, and some players use the bass register too so you might need two microphones.

    Beware of some rattling noise from the keys.

    My first choice would be a Neumann M149.

    Have fun! :tu:

    Last time I mic'ed one, I used 2 414EB's on a very old Hohner. The keys yielded a significant amount of key click and rattle. I mentioned this to the player, who BTW brought his own hand made hammer dulcimer for the same session, and he said people always hear key clicks on acc., forget it, that's the way they sound.
