    Preamps for recording Godin & Taylor

    Hi everyone, new to the forum! I'm looking into buying a preamp that works well for recording both a Godin Multiac (just using the direct sound) and a Taylor 714ce. But for different reasons. For the Godin, I'm looking for new colors. I want to have options for some bite, beef, or low end...

    New Norman guitar!

    Hi gang, I bought a Tanglewood guitar from a friend a few years back and I always wanted to upgrade but since I'm a drummer and I hope I can say an audio engineer. I had a lot on my budget plate. Funny enough the guy that sold me the guitar called to buy it back last week because he missed...

    mix critique Critique of acoustic guitar tune please?

    I recently finished an album of all-acoustic guitar songs. Kinda jazzy, folky, mellow easy listening. I recorded this particular tune with 2 condenser mics focused in an X-Y configuration near 12th fret. The mics were 2 AKG P170's. The mics were both run into 2 separate tube preamps then into...

    Best stools for studio guitarists

    What the best stool you've used for playing acoustic guitar? One that isn't squeaky, noisy and well padded? Would you choose 24 inch or 30 inch? That being said, I was looking at the Taylor and Gibson stools. Gibson' s have sore butt reviews. There is nothing on the Taylor's but they look...

    Acoustic guitars for recording?

    I owned the Taylor 314CE for years and passed it off to my daughter. I need a new Taylor or something comparable to be able to earn some extra income. I don't really want the electronics. I'd much rather have nothing inside the box. That being said, I have been considering the 414CE for some...

    Two mics, different types different distances from guitar... how to check and avoid phase issues?

    Been experimenting with using two mics on my acoustic - an SM57 (dynamic), and a single RODE M5 (a condenser). I generally blend these (with the 57 doing most of the work) but the RODE still contributing. The 57 is generally up pretty close -anywhere from 8 to 12 inches, and the Rode is about...

    Recording direct with Taylor ES2

    I have a Taylor 816e with the Expression System 2, and I enjoy recording with it. I've got two young kids, so my studio time often falls during play and/or homework time. On the rare occasion I do have some quiet studio time, I record with two or three of my (decent) condenser mics plus the...

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I'm looking to purchase a single mic to record female (alto) vocals, and acoustic and clean electric guitar. My guitar amp is a Princeton Reverb.

    Dynamic mic for an acoustic

    Hi, I have a very small room (8'x8', 6' tall) . I have tried acoustic treatment, but frankly, with this room I think I'd probably have to make it completely dead. That would require even more treatment than I've already tried. I got rid of that because, frankly, 2 4" rockwool panels on each wall...
