Which makes me think that this could be posted in 'Technique' as well, but here is where it is. Did a recording session tonight and had the best luck that I've ever had recording. I was at Garden Productions ($65/hr, great piano, better than average seperation, good sight lines to the rest of the band, one headphone mix), Jimmy Madison engineering. He put a Neumann KM87 (?, not certain of the model number. He said it's also referred to as the 'lipstick'). Anyhow, tiny little mic, mebbe a 3/4" in diameter and an inch or two long. He shock mounted it with a bunch of rubber bands between the legs of the bridge, facing straight up. Sounded exactly like my bass with everything on the board flat. I'll get the exact model number of this mic when I talk to Jimmy next. I can't wait to hear the final mixdown. Gotta have one of these for myself.
