Vintage Microphones on Acoustic Recording


- Neumann KM-56 or KM-54 is great for close miking of acoustic instruments. These microphones have a nice top-end sound and the bottom-end sound is rolled off pretty well on them. (see the above photo)

- AKG C-452 is great for the isolation and it's polar pattern is tight. C-452 is well used for tracking acoustic instruments. The problem with C-452 on acoustics is something that it can be too  brittle sounding, so you should add some warmth in the midrange area.

- Neumann U-67 is great for acoustics, especially for acoustic guitar sounds.

- Neumann M-49 is a much warmer microphone and when you get them further away from the instrument and they are going to sound very real.

- AKG C-24 is very good microphone for close miking, but not as much for accurate ambient miking, whereas the M-49's are almost like the human ear.
