Showing some new gear

Description
Hello MacJammer friends! Just wanted to show some new gear that makes med enthusiastic. On this recording I have added no effects whatsoever. No EQ. No nothing. Just a guitar (two stero tracks) made with two mikes through a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface.

Audio Technica Pro37
Today! I finally got a pair of these mikes and I feel they will do justice to acoustic guitar. (Sold the ribbon mikes. They added too much hiss on such a relatively quiet source as the acoustic guit. The lack of descent mikes has held me from wanting to record for a long time.)

Martin D-16GT
Furhtermore, a couple of years ago I got myself this guitar that I am so greatly happy with. This is my first post with this guitar. It is a D-16GT, a budget model.

Solid spruce/mahogany like a D-18.
Scalloped bracing like the D-18 New.
Paid very close to half of a D-18.

Compromises are made with things like synthetic materials in fingerboard, bridge and saddle. And the tuners were crappy but it was easy self-do to change them for a set of real Groovers. After two years of playing it has grown to a wonderful instrument with a beautiful voice.

Should I also mention my new favourite strings. John Pearse acoustic set #250, 80/20 Bronse Wound Bluegrass.

Hej
Nice to hear from you again, seems a long time ago. Well this doesn't sound half bad, not that I would hear the difference ;-) Hope things are going alright for you these days. Take care.

Wishlist
Those mics sound great. I'm putting them on my wishlist. I'm always dissatisfied with how my guitar sounds when I record it.

Yes
I understand that a lot! I've had that struggle for a long time. Not being able to buy mikes for a thousand dollars or more, i have tried different mikes and never been satisfied.

The Audio Technica Pro37 may not be a hundred percent crystal clear, but clearly clear enough to make a guitar sound great. They seem to be very forgiving to all harsh sounds and sharp trebles. Especially condensor mikes tend to pick up such sounds from steel stringed guitars, and even to amplify them, with dissatisfying result. And as small membrane mikes you can put then quite close to the guitar without them producing overly boomy sounds.

Glad you're finding new inspiration. This sounds absolutely beautiful. It would need very little EQ'ing. It's a luxury when all you need to do is maybe cut some frequencies - this recording seems to have such a full spectrum and brings out the full, sonorous sound of the guitar. Or accentuates your excellent playing or both.

I have no experience with guitars, except for having some friends who are quite good at it, but this just all makes sense - especially the scalloped bracing (kidding, have no idea what that means).

Good to hear from you, your fingerstyle guitar is one of the most enjoyable treats here on MJ.

Yes
A little EQ'ing would be needed. Wanted to show this because i was exalted bout what i got directly dry out of these mikes. All other mikes i've tried needed lots of afterwork to get some acceptable result.

(Scalloped bracing means that the braces inside the guitar are carved down where they dont have to be so thick, thus producing a more lively wooden sound. Until a few years ago the Martin D-18:s didnt have it and i think that even todays D-18:s dont have it.)
Thank you for a nice comment :)

focusrite
That's interesting. I do not have the experience, or ability enough, to hear what comes from the interface. How would you describe the characteristics of the focusrite? I ask because i am looking to purhase one of my own.

Guitar player since 11. Can't play other instruments than acoustic guitars, well maybe aside from instruments that are tuned the same way; like ukulele or bass guitar. In younger years I took inspiration from classical guitar, American acoustic... [see more]
