I was recording yesterday at the metway studio in brighton with an engineer who wasn't used to miking horns. after a bit of experimenting he came up with a superb set up for getting the sound of my mauriat... for anyone who records themselves or uses studios- try this; one ambient mike about 4' in front of the horn- pointing at my belt level. now here's the trick, one mike to my right pointing at the bell keys. the side mike really captures the richness of tone and the whole set up it much less harsh than miking straight down the bell........
