any names / models of condensers you can recommend?
i have a art preamp that has a phantom power switch so that's kool.
also could i use the condensers on my amp?

joe meek jm27's were £40 at digital village not long ago, im not sure if they still will be. if they are thats an absolutely brilliant deal, i have two from there, as does Mike from these boards.
those are particulary good on acoustic guitar for the money. although it has to be said that if i was recording acoustic id use a mic like an akg c414 (maybe £500 s/h) or a neumann (£700+), but usually in conjuction with something like that jm27.
a pair of jm27s will do nicely, or even a single one if well placed.

of course it depends on which you choose tho

I've got a kind of demo made with just those two mics here:

It's the "MXL 603s Microphone Test".
That's my friend GW playing acoustic and singing with the two mics set up in front. It's two completely raw tracks with nothing added in.

They're not really that expensive either. Go for the matched pair - you'll eventually want to do stereo recording and having a matched pair helps out - it's worth the extra money!
I bought mine of ebay for about $200 for a matched pair.

the one time i can think of that its useful is something like a symphony orchestra where having that kind of symmetry is important. with something like an acoustic guitar its an advantage to have different mics, even if they are the same model and subtley different.
give me a convincing argument for matched pairs in this context and ill give a public apology

i understand fully that theyd be useful for stereo recording in that sense, and if you were going for a balancd stereo picture with drum overheads.
i just think when you're getting a couple of cheap condensors it isnt worth bothering with, especally if its going to add to the cost.
what schoeps mics do you have? ive never had a chance to use any but theyre definitely something i want to try.

I use Schoeps MK4, MK5 and MK6 capsules with a pair of preamps for location work, but they are excellent for studio recording acoustic instruments too, especially strings.

new mics are off the table for a little bit (untill i get this guitar iam doin all done) .
so i thought i would concentrate on makeing the setup i have work a bit better . i took the advice on recording in the corner and recorded the tune again . its on my soundclick does it sound any better ? i spent a bit trying to mix it better and got sick heheh . also there's vocals on it now , i hate the sound of my voice but theres no one else here to sing it so
tell me if its any better
