Hey all This is practically my first post here and hopefully not my last. I'm just going to go over a little background info about myself first so you guys can get the general idea Well my name is Alex Bird and I am studying sound engineering at MAINZ in Auckland, New Zealand (that little country (island) down the bottom of the world!) Next Saturday a small group of us are going out with one of our teachers on a field trip to record a pipe band. Now the question, What mic's do you guys recommend using on recording a pipe band? Most likely we will be doing this in a hall or venue of sorts so we wont have to worry about outside noise. Now due to several connections, we have available to us almost any mic to use for this (last time we borrowed some QTC40's and the time before that some really nice DPA mics (for different things)) So comments / suggestions please Thanks in advance, Alex.
