I spend a great deal of time researching and trying microphones, preamps, interfaces and combinations that meet my requirements for quality, performance and ease of use. This is a list of some of my favourite and most used equipment.
I'm not affiliated whatsoever to any of these brands, this is what I use because I like them and have payed full price - unless otherwise noted!
My favourite microphone for capturing the nuance of the classical guitar and of other acoustic instruments. Almost every single one of my recordings is this microphone or this and a TLM102.
