I agree with the other reviewers, these microphones are outstanding for recording acoustic guitars. I have spent years looking for the right combination of gear to get a high quality acoustic guitar recording and I am thrilled with these microphones. Depending on your setup you can get a naturally bright or warm sound, and create a natural subtle chorus effect by positioning the microphones appropriately. I run them through an A Designs Pacifica, nail compressor, and EM-EQ2 equalizer. The ability to sculpt the sound is endless. I know most engineers recommend not using a compressor on acoustic guitar recordings. I find it depends on the guitar and how you are playing it. Light compression helps smooth out the peaks and using parallel compression helps to fine tune the effect.
