I am looking to record acoustic guitar. A lot of folk and finger picking so low volume playing. Based on what I have read so far I am in the market for Small Diaphragm Condenser(s).
SDC Choices... I have a HUGE 64 voice choir to record next month and my main/primary issue is micing the large choir to achieve tracks that will be usable for adjusting balance with minimal phase problems and bleed from other instrumentation and vocals.
I'll be getting a pair of good small diaphragm condensers, here in a couple months.
Would like those of you with experience with these mics to describe how there character in sound.
They'll be used as overheads to track drums for all genres, and they'll be my main SDC's
Which Neumann SDC do you prefer for acoustic guitars...
Steel > KM84
Nylon? > KM184
I need a mic like this, but this type seems very poor
Does anybody know something about it ?
I mean something cheap. I don't need Schoeps, that is too expensive to me...
I'm looking for something to record acoustic instruments and probably act as a drum mic occasionally. Acoustic instruments are by far the more important use for me. Guitar and Violin mostly. Thanks!
My other mics are a RODE NT1A and an SM58.
