    Similar situation . Less robust playing style on a om type guitar which inherently have less projection. I'm trying close miking the instrument now . I think that may be the answer. Closer to fretboard and the body of guitar angled away picking up less directly so it's not too bassy . But how close Is too close I wonder? I experimented last night with the large diaphragm mic maybe 6 inches off the fretboard . I played it back at full volume and it didn't seem to distort . Can't say i really noticed any clipping either while doing the test ....Experts ?

    If you keep it away from the soundhole blasts I wouldn't worry about it. I have had LDC's as close as about 4-5 inches from the neck and maybe 6 from the body. I use a pop filter if I have the mic at the level of the sound hole if I am unsure. I doubt the db is going to be ever loud enough to cause issues.

    All good . Think I've got a fair grasp of the basic concepts . If I can figure out getting a sample into the phone I will . My challenge Is to get a single guitar track the best i can from that mic . Learnt a lot here about mic proximity in particular . Pop filter near sound hole was a new one to me also, though I'll likely be away from it's direct impact . Many thanks

    ". If I can figure out getting a sample into the phone I will" Er..How is this a problem? I have a "dumb" ***** 201 and if I want music on it I just connect a USB cable from my lappy and dump into the on board micro SD card.

    I guess I could also take out the card and copy to that from the laptop.
