I am slowly trying to buy equipment so I can do some recording of very loud and sometimes very low things. I am wanting to record Fireworks, canon blasts, F1 racing, dragsters, monster trucks, Icebergs cracking and other more normal things such as piano, Viol Da Gamba and others. So being very new at this I was just going to be using a Tascam or Zoom portable recorder and use an external mic. Which mic I have know idea. This will be a very very slow buy. I am trying to do alot of other things so I am mainly seeking advice. I cant afford mics that are 1500 right now but maybe in the future. I think in a few years I can save up for a SD 702 and maybe a AEA 84 but please enlighten me with some budget friendly advice and guidance. Thanks David Oh and I forgot I like to listen to recordings that have content down to around 6hz. It is very fun on my subs and my friends subs. Not saying I need all recordings to go that low just saying why I put the thread title up.
