I'll have to record a new instrument to me.
It's an open back banjo
(metal strings and metal fingered)
Most of the sound comes out the back i am told,
so I'm assuming 0.5 meters from te back would be a good position
I think a dynamic like the 421 would be a good starting point...
He will be solo, no singing, so I'm already lucky. His style is
not a rolling banjo, but a strident picking, and at times he
hammers with his fingertips on the membrane, kinda like a
conga drum, between the quarter notes.
His style sounds alright, but very in my face.
These are my...
