Default New guitar recorded w 3 mics

Hello everyone, I wasn’t looking for a new guitar but when I played this CEO 9 at my local shop Wednesday, I went back and got it before anyone else had a chance to snag it. I have recorded it using two sE VR1 “voodoo” ribbon mics on the neck and body and my WA 251 tube mic set to omni and as an overhead. I was interested too to see how my room is starting to sound now that I have added more treatment to what I already had. Both the ribbons have 75hz rolled off by my interface and the only other eq is on the main output where I rolled off at 16k. There is no compression, reverb, or delay added. I am pretty pleased with both the guitar sound and the room. How about you?

Sounds good and very acceptable
Did you roll off any low end on the 251 ? (I am only listening on laptop earbuds) but it sounds just on verge of a tiny bit of boom in low end.
Also I think (if it were me ) Mix wise I would drop the 251 track a few db (assuming it is up the middle) to get just a bit more spread in the sound field (or not )

Also I would experiment with the 251 in cardioid also

I am just having fun experimenting. In this case, the “neck”’ ribbon is in the middle. The spread sounds a little funny like it is shifting to me as well. What I do like is the overall guitar sound. I am learning and messing around with different placements.

The 251 is actually panned right.

I'm surprised at the clear sound from the ribbons. Sounds really good.

Now I see that your ribbons are a few notches above the one I have (Sterling ST-170).
