    Working a client that does "old time" acoustic/vocals (with bass and drums but I'm mainly concerned about the acoustic/vox). Any ideas on micing to capture that ballsy Martin sound?

    Would minimizeing bleed between the tracks be an issue worth considering in this type of music? The guy's not comfortable with doing guitar and vocals separate (although willing to try, but it would probably affect his performance).

    I have a limitied supply of mics:
    Studio Projects C3 (cardioid, fig8, omni)
    Shure KSM27 (cardioid)
    AKG D310

    I thought about using my SP C3 set on fig8 for the vox so it would miss some of the acoustic bleed, but I really want to keep both raw tracks as pure as possible.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Take a look at my thread I just posted (Dead Link Removed)

    This is a dreadnought and the idea was to capture the balls. Maybe a littel too bassy for voice but you get the idea.
