Recording the 12-string

I'd be interested to hear how my fellow players approach recording the instrument.  Direct with the on-board pickups (and, if so, using what DI and/or preamp) or mic'ed, and with what for a microphone?  Or both?  I know there are all sorts of ways to do this, each producing a somewhat different tone.See More

Keaggy's  As Warm As Tears is one of the tunes I use when auditioning a new guitar. and yes it was a bit difficult when i was auditioning baritones.

I'm FINALLY getting time to play it for a while...btwn work, Wife and 3 Border Collies, not too many "dull" moments around here. it must be wonderful to have a Wife who is also a musical partner. My Wife loves my playing, but doesn't do so herself. She's a saint tho!!

Hi Robert,

Welcome to the 12-String group. I see that Phil Keaggy and Bob Bennett are a couple of your favorite artists...mine too. Keaggy is probably my all time favorite, but I can't play his stuff, so I try to play (mostly unsuccessfully!) songs by SC Chapman, Pat Terry Group, Jim Cole, Bruce Carroll, etc. I play a Guild 12 string, also have Yamaha and Guild and 6 strings.

Charlie
