3 BOUTIQUE SETUPS, 3 DISTINCT SOUNDS
PICKED ACOUSTIC captures the rich, clear tone of a Martin 00-21 – a small-bodied, Sitka spruce–topped guitar, perfectly suited to melodic and finger-picked playing styles. Favored by Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and many others over the years, the 00-21 has featured on countless hit records. Our model, a pristine 1973 example, was played by a seasoned session pro and sampled through three different stereo microphone setups for maximum versatility:
The Condenser (AB) mic setup uses two condenser mics for a natural, modern-sounding stereo image. Dynamic (MS) uses a vintage dynamic mic to recall the rock and folk sounds of the 70s, enhanced with a tube condenser mic in figure-of-eight mode for adjustable stereo width. And Ribbon (Blumlein) employs two ribbon mics for a rich and warm vintage sound.
