Currently I have an Audio Technica AT2035 (large diaphragm condenser) for recording guitar and vocals.


I want to have a more "natural" acoustic guitar sound and rather than double-tracking everything, I believe stereo micing is the way to go.


In conjunction with my Audio Technica AT2035, can somebody recommend me a microphone to use to record acoustic guitar?


I have a budget of around 100 pounds.


An example of the type of acoustic guitar sound I want can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ycaocta_OCw

Honestly, that recording sounds mono to me. I'm on my laptop so I can't put it into Logic and check but I'd be willing to put some money on it being mono. That being said, I've always thought stereo tracking was the way to go and always do it unlessthe guitar isn't a key feature of the mix. Ideally when stereo miking you want a pair of identical microphones, especially if you'll be using XY or ORTF. You could get away with getting a small diaphragm condenser for some variety and still achieve a good stereo image but since you already have the 2035 I'd try to get another LD condenser.

It wasn't the best example of acoustic guitar. Essentially Elliott Smith. It's just going to be guitar and voice so the guitar really needs to be big you know?

^^My friend has this set and I was really impressed with them, especially for the money. The small diaphragm really brought out the high end.

Those are both sets of stereo mics that get decent reviews (from what I've read)


I honestly don't know which is best for my purposes.
