man rubbing his gongs
has anyone recorded large gongs before ? - a guy wants me to record a gig he is doing next week in a church with a few large gongs - one of them is 2 metres tall
thing is - he 's not only hitting the gongs but he's using a variety of mallets to rub the gongs to produce some really cool subtle sounds -
there is enough room for me sit behind the gongs with my computer, so i was thinking of being there with 2 dynamic mics up close and 2 pzm's at the sides and forward a bit of the gongs
at the front and in the distance - a zoom h4n in the middle with 2 condenser mics at the sides
i know that i ll obviously have to monitor the mic positions to find the sweet spots but does anyone have any advice?
