Recording an acoustic gtr (Takamine) w/capo that has a healthy string buzz and pick noise. The player wants stereo image and an intimate, close-mic sound. I'm having trouble finding a spot that's not accentuating pick noise or string buzz. I tried every mic set up I could think of. I'm using a pair of MK102 but I tried SR77's and a Brauner Valvet/Dragonfly combo as well with no luck. The guitarist plays pretty hard and I've suggested: 1 playing softer with a thin pick 2 distance micing (3-4 ft. back) 3 taking the guitar in for a set up 4 getting a different guitar for recording I don't want to offend the guitarist, but I think the guitar/playing style is wrong for the sound the player is looking for. However, I'm not ruling out that I'm just missing some technique for getting around this problem. Any suggestions?
