They are fairly acceptable on overheads....you can get goo...

Re: Recording Ukulele

I did a mandolin with the 4041 and it came across great......I'd guess that the instruments are working in somewhat the same frequencies.....

Re: Pet Sounds

My two cents?....Frank Zappa did more to advance recording technology and musicality in 20th popular music than Brian Wilson.....sorry Brian fans......

I've been recording at school with a Sony DMX-R 100, Pro Tools & ADATs......Large Pro Rooms with SSL Consoles....and at home with my chumpy Delta 1010 and Sonic Foundry Vegas software....the only thing that matters in my mind is that you do record regardless of what you have....either be involved or...

A fellow I knew gave me a Shure 515SA mic. that was used at the grocery store he worked at to call for cleanups and price checks....not bad if you need to add that grocery store clerk sound to a track.
