Flatpicking Guitar Network

For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine

Hello fellow flatpickers:

I'm going to be starting a new recording project sometime this winter and I've been wanting to audition some small diaphram condenser mics. I've owned several good ones over the years, but it occured to me that I've never owned them all at the same time to be able to do a real comparison. And a person can go crazy trying get any useful information by reading the recording threads - ask two recording engineers a question and you'll get three different opinions - no disrespect intended. I love you guys.

So my idea is to dedicate a future column to doing a mic shootout featuring small-diaphram, cardioid condenser mics. I put out the word to several manufacturers and have gotten commitments so far from Neumann, Mercenary Audio and DPA. AKG initially agreed, and then backed out after hearing who the competition is (or so it seems). I'm waiting to hear from Schoeps, Peluso, Josephson, Gefell and a couple of others.

My question to you all is - do any of you own these mics, and would you be willing to send one to me for a short recording session? It will be returned promptly with the proper insurance, and handled with extreme caution. Let me know what you think.
