Hot! #25: SDC on Strummed Acoustic

Minneapolis musician and room audio treatment designer Bryan Knisley came into the studios to conduct a Mic Site session where we are testing Small Diaphragm Condenser microphones. All of the mics in this test are under $500 and some as little as $60.

Bryan played a on a Yamaha FD01S for this session. The mics are set about 8 inces (20cm) from the where sound hole meets the guitar’s neck. All mic pads were set to 0db and if there were roll off switches they were set to flat.
