Recording and mixing acoustic guitar
 
Hi Al,
Could you tell about recording and mixing acoustic guitar? Your favourite mic, preamp, EQ, compressor? Mic placement?

Glad to see you here.
Thanks,
Igor.

I dont use eq or compresson when I record accoustic guitar, I use different mics, I like the Royer Tube, I also use the large diafram tube that A T makes and sometimes the Neumann M149. I place it in front of the f hole about 1 foot from the guitar. Ill ajust it after listening in the control room. Sounds simple and it is. Al
