Best mic for sax?

Discussion in 'Brass' started by Mynameistrouble, Jul 15, 2005.

  1. I'm about to record a girl who wants some sax on her record, was just wondering which out these mics (or possibly combination thereof) would be best:
    SM57beta
    Senn 421
    AT4040
    I was thinking the 421 with the 4040 for ambience, but any input would be very useful.

    I think I would go with the 4040 myself.

    I would try either dynamic micing the front of the sax, with the 4040 up above a bit and to the side.
