A 12 string, 2 large condenser mics and toying with intervals...6ths are cool.....

Final Thoughts


To the helpful experts, I used two large condenser mics on the lower bout of this 12 string guitar. A tiny bit of verb and a touch of EQ to balance things out. What else would you recommend? I was thinking of a third pen condenser at about the 12th fret for a little more clarity...

Very nice sound and playing smile.gif

Regarding mics I suggest you the following:

Two mics, 1st pointing to 12th fret and 2nd to bridge (pointing from outside), you can get a nice stereo sound.. If you want to add more depth add a 3rd mic to back of guitar, mirroring the bridge mic, but make sure to switch phase in recording software (for back mic), since these two mics (bridge and back) may cancel each other

Putting a mic pointing to the hole will make the sound muddy, there is a way of recording stereo sound with two mics in the middle in X position, pointing to 12th fret and bridge respectively, but you cannot get a real stereo image with it

It sounds very nice mate, I would prefer a bit lighter sound, with more presense, but it sounds very nice indeed, great job smile.gif
