Classical guitar recording Audio Technica 4050 AB

Here is a recording I did with 2 AT4050 in omni AB.

Hall is probably too big for classical guitar, but we had a very low budget (none) and this was a great location for the video.

I tried Blumlein but AB was better in this situation.

I posted a thread here before and many people helped me choose microphones, placements, tips, etc.

Like it. I would have liked a shot from the right angle too. But like it. Very nice job.

Ok I have a couple questions for you because you captured the sound of his guitar incredibly well.

First, how much did the room help? While I know the answer is "a lot" but a beautiful church doesn't always mean beautiful acoustics.

Second, how far back and how high were the mics? I have eyes but numbers are more precise.

Third, was there any post production on the sound? Would you mind sharing your signal chain?

Again, fantastic recording!!! I'm a classical guitarist learning to record and hearing examples like this from mic brands I can afford is always encouraging!

thanks for the very kind comments.


I did not measure the distance between the guitar and the mics, but it was about 6 feet in front of the guitar and the height was the guitar players head height.

Mics are about 3 feet from each other in Omni. They are Audio Technica 4050.

Preamps are from my Presonus Firepod (I know.. but they work)

No post processing except a so very slight bass boost (2dB ) (bell about 2 oct wide) at 150hz just to give the guitar a tad more bottom. I would have liked a little more maybe but you can hear the ventilation is pretty loud.

The room was really huge as you can see.

(I hope people will still like it even if they know I used some cheap gear... hehe)
