I need a mic that will produce good quality recordings of guitar (accoustic & electric) and piano.
I would love one under £300 but £500 would be the max.

Any suggestions?

The cheaper the better..
Under £100 would be perfect but I realise it's slightly unrealistic.

No, I don't have anything :ohno:
well, you need one to power the microphone. also, you plug the mic to the preamp because you can't connect it straight to your computer. the preamp connects to your computer. if you're looking for a usb microphone (plugs directly to your computer), you can get the Audio-Technica AT2020 usb condenser microphone. It's great for vocals for the price, not sure about instruments though.

Damn, I didn't even think about that. I'll have to do some research. And I'll check that thread out now.
Thanks man :h5:

Two condenser mics, matched pair, low and pointed towards the hammer.

or

Two condenser or omnidirectional mics, matched pair, high and pointed towards the lid.

I've never miked one myself nor have I used one that's miked, so I wouldn't know the specifics on how to use this. The best person to ask would be Ivy.

Honestly if you want to spend that kind of money, you'll be best getting something that you won't outgrow.

I have friends who use this one for vocals & guitar.

I use this one for just vocals and its great.

I honestly think you could use either but, as you become more serious/advanced it may be best to pick one that you don't think you'd outgrow.

Hope this helps
