Recording the Harp Guitar

I've never heard one of these. Love the depth of the bass when it comes in. Looks like many of the videos I watched are using pick-ups however I would enjoy hearing examples of them being recorded with mics.

Any examples, please share.

 Here's local Piedmont/Delta picker Neil Harpe on a strange dual neck Stella he found when I was with him at the Wilmington (or Philly) guitar show. This was for video, so I wanted a more open view without mic stands everywhere. I found a nice lobe of sound coming off the bottom bout of this beastie. The guitar was quiet and slightly subdued, so I used one TLM 103 which can be seen as I pull back. I mixed with a little reverb, limiting and compression.

I have never heard of this kind of guitar. Perhaps they meant special extras? If so, the first thing to do is to find a guitar rig.

I don’t understand your comment. Please explain what you mean “special extras?

Preferably a microphone that can set itself up. You also need to use specially selected picks and guitar killswitches. The pickups work on an identical principle to electric guitar pickups and have almost the same technical structure. Their difference is only in the frequency range, which is quite obviously different for the two instruments. I think you should ask a competent specialist for more details.

I'm sorry, but I can't seem to find the comments your answers relate to - I didn't;t get the special bit, and now kill switches has appeared - It's like you're replying to comments I can't seem to find? Has a post got lost or something?
