Hello, I finally came to make a short comparison between four ribbon mics for classical guitar:
https://soundcloud.com/rojarosguitar/se ... cal-guitar
I compare here four different ribbon microphones numbered one to four. The mics with the same number are the same throughout the test. They all went simultaneously through Antelope Zenstudio interface Micpres at the same amplification level and were normalized to -0.9dB in Protools 11. Recorded at 96kHz/24 bit and bounced to 44.1/16 with no processing whatsoever. So within the differences of the placements of the microphones these are takes of exactly the same playing and as such can be directly compared to a certain degree.
The mics were level with my eyes and a good stretched arm length distance from me.
The guitar used here is a Sebastian Stenzel 'Enhanced Wood' modell (cedar/Hondurian RW).
I will divulge later which one is which. Any comments very welcome.
The pieces are by:JS Bach, Esim Can and SL Weiss.
Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...
