Video: How to Mic Acoustic and Electric Guitars

Our friends at Sam Ash Music were kind enough to take the time to make this video with Jonathan Pines (of Fingerprint Audio, our US Distributor) and some of our favorite guitar microphones: the VR1 and VR2 ribbons and the sE2200 condenser.

Jonathan has recorded guitars for Larry Coryell, Adrian Belew, Wilco and more, and he does a great job explaining how to listen to your instrument, pick the right mic, and experiment with mic placements to achieve a multitude of different tones.

MIXDOWN Review: sE / Rupert Neve Signature Series Microphones

Australian music magazine MIXDOWN just did a round-up review of all three sE / Rupert Neve Signature Series microphones, and the results are in. Here are a few quotes, with a link to the full review at the bottom!

 


“Recording on the cardioid setting, the RNT is forward and transparent. Voices are articulate and crystal clear, with a nice proximity effect when positioned closer to the speaker or singer.”

 

“Laser-like focus and great side rejection…it’s perfect as a microphone for rooms when recording instruments or as a direct mic on anything you can throw at it (figuratively, of course. The RN17 is robust, but please don’t throw anything at it, nor throw it around a room).”

 


“What I love most about the RNR1 is that it still sounds like a ribbon mic. The high frequency response is detailed and articulate, but the overall sound still feels smooth and treated like any other ribbon microphone would.”
