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.
