Hey everyone, Sorry that link didn't work before. It's fixed now. I've seen Mike Jasper's shootout. It's a good review... and thorough. But I'm actually looking for sound clips of various stereo acoustic guitar miking techniques. It'd be nice to hear the same guitar and same mic's recorded w/ XY, AB...

Gregg, Thanks for the offer! I can get one from Rock 'N' Roll Rentals in Austin if I need to. Just emailed John Vanderslice for advice. He owns a 441 and frequently uses this technique. He calls it the "wild card" mic. His prefers an SM58 over the 441 for his "wild card" duties. Guess I'll try that ...

@Nick Sevilla. This is essentially what I've been doing up until this point and it definitely goes a long way. The reason I want to track the sound is two-fold. Firstly, I want the drummer to react and play into any compression on the kit. I've found that when musicians play into compression (especi...

@jgimbel - thanks for the heads up. That's still pretty pricey for me at the moment. Hoping for an alternative in the $100-$200 range.

I'd love to have one someday. I can think of one female vocalist I work with that it would probably shine on. (Read: Stevie Nicks-esque tone.)

Tchad Blake Mono Kit Mic: 441 Alternative

I'm wanting to do that Tchad Blake 441 -> Level-Loc thing. I know he uses the 441 because it has a fair amount of proximity and it's super-cardioid.

Anyone know of some less expensive alternatives to the 441 ($900)? Preferably in the $100-$200 range.

Thanks!

@rhythmranch that looks like the way to do it. Attach the mic with hair-ties inside the PVC and then find a way to mount the PVC.

Mechanical Filter Mounting

I've been experimenting with mechanical filters at the house and have more of a practical question about them. How do you mount them on a mic stand? For example, I bought a 2' piece of PVC that a 57 sticks in perfectly and I want to be able to point it at a sound source. How do I get that sucker on ...

Thanks everyone, I received my reflexion filter in the mail and will be trying that out. I'm going to have to get creative with the furniture and packing blankets for the rest because I can't install anything. Great suggestions so far though!
