I have been experimenting lately with different recording distances and settings for my mouthpiece reviews. Usually, I record dry with no effects about 2 feet from the microphone. I’ve noticed that darker sounding mouthpieces can sound rich and beautiful in this setting but many times the brighter more powerful mouthpieces can sound harsh, shrill, edgy, thin or just generally unpleasant recorded this way……….
Because I’m a bit overly obsessive, I set up this poll to see what you all think of the different distances from the mic as well as the effects used on the sounds. I have my own opinions but I thought it would be interesting to open it up to all of you to see what you think. If you want to add additional insights or thoughts, feel free to in the comment section below. Thanks for your help and input, Steve
