I am not sure I can define it. Listening through my usual Senheiser Urbanite as I listen almost all YT recordings. You seem to play well, but I don't know if the nasal sound of trebles is coming from the mics or from your tone production, I suppose it is the mic since you seem to play very clean otherwise. I am aware it is supposed to be cheap, but I am not sure the cheap in this case is justified. I hope you don't mind my critique. I am thinking of maybe recording something myself, so I am just trying to find something simple and easy, with "good enough" quality for pleasant listening.
I hope I do not make anyone feels that I'm criticizing in anyway. I'm a learning classical guitarist day by day and I started playing guitar since the past 22 years. Just about last year, I finally afford to own my first concert grade guitar, Sakurai Masaki PC. I only realise that my nails and plucking techniques have been seriously flawed and thanks to such an amazing guitar, I'm able to realise that finger nails and plucking techniques is extremely crucial. I hope I'm able to share some of my points here. It can be quite a complicated matter down to reviewing the mics or a guitar. I recently been trying to look for a pair of better mics, and is really convinced by this Superflux. The package is on its way to my doorsteps.
And in regards of the sample recording posted here, I personally can't comment or give comparison which mics are better. However, I personally find that the guitar player's nails and plucking technique is the main reason of the bright and thin sounding, but not the mic. I find that the mic is really good for what it is costing. The guitar player's tone reproduction is extremely crucial, it can make a guitar and the mic to sound day and night difference.
