Blumlein Pair

Discussion in 'Pro Audio Equipment' started by blake eat world, Aug 26, 2001.

  1. Anyone here experimented with using a Blumlein pair to record a drum kit? Or anything for that matter? I just got done reading an article about the micing technique and it sounds like it should work really well.

    i'm a sucker for blumlein's...so smoooooooth...
    i usually use 2 at4050s (i don't have the mic closet that some of us here do) and i get result's i'm very happy with...mostly for acoustic guitar or small percussion ...

    i've also had good results using a blumlein for a set of semi-distant piano mics (about 6') away
    as for drums...engineer i worked with about 6 months ago was set on trying a blumlein for overheads and it worked great..very smooth image of the kit...only problem was balancing the kit for the stereo image (typical rock/pop kick/snare centered) can't really cheap it...

    i talk to much
