Next week I'm gonna record two acoustic harmonica tracks for my next solo album, and I feel like I need to contrast my strategy with someone else.
This is what I was thinking:
Since I play with lots of octaves and chords, I thought it could be a good idea to record with two microphones: a condenser 1 meter/3 feet in front of the harmonica + and a dynamic mic placed right below my left hand, using proximity effect to capture all that extra body of bass-like sound.
Does it make sense for you? What would you suggest? Is there any microphone combination you'd recommend?
Here is an example of my octave and chord use.
Thanks a lot guys, have a great weekend and stay safe wherever you are!
