Rich(bodhránai gan ciall) Help: Best way of miking up bongo and bodhran (17) RE: Help: Best way of miking up bongo and bodrahn 18 Jun 01

I use an AKG mic whose model number I don't remember. (One of those triangular ones that are built like a tank) I mike at lest 2/3 of the way down about 3 inches from the skin of my bodhrán tilted at a slight angle upward. I use a boom stand to place in such a way that the stand's not in my way and it's not attached, allowing me to move closer or farther from the mic. This is for performing. I don't know if this would be ideal for recording or not. I suppose in recording you could do a lot of the same dynamics fluctuation in the mix.

Ádh mhór! (good luck)
