Interesting read

Slightly geared towards their own range, but nethertheless a good guide to various aspects of microphones - type, patterns, care, usage, etc.

thanks, nice one!

I read that when I was first looking for mics (since I bought a M-audio card). Pretty good read, and even though they state that our “such and such” would be good for this, they are pretty balanced (they talk about different types of mics they don’t produce and what they recomend them for, such as ribbon mics).

I liked the various ways to mic drums with different quantities of mics. Very good read IMHO. Of course I am a little obsessed with micing drums (rightfully so in my opinion since they are a difficult aspect of recording).

Here another mic placement&types guide, interesting since includes micing of choirs to an harp:
