Hi guys, this has probably been covered in other threads but i am still seeking advice on this, i want to hook up a mic for acoustic recording, i find my semi-acoustic guitar recordings not very satisfying, im not really getting the results i want. So i basically want advice on a good mic for acoustic recordings, the price range should be 350-400$.

The ideal thing would probably be to hook it up with 2 mics, but it must be possible to get a somewhat decent sound with just 1 good mic...so any suggestions?

Two mikes, yes for better result, and use condensor mikes.

A couple of condensers could do a great job, although even one NT5 can do the trick nicely, depending what quality you need. Giving in respect that you make great tracks I would say you're definitely in need of two wink.gif
