Any recommendations for a good mic to record clarinet? Or alternatively, mic placement? Or both? All my mics (SM 58, AKG C-1000S, AKG C535EB) give the intrument a harsh reedy sound around in the mids which I had to eq severely to smooth out. (Yes, I'm sure a Neumann U87 would sound great, but...) Obviously their presence peak is working against the recording in this case. I realize the clarinet is a slighly edgy instrument, but the sound was harsher than it needed to be. Once you have to eq by cutting a full 15 db when you're trying for a natural sound, that tells me something is wrong! I tried various mic positions; the best seemed to be around 6" below and facing into the bell. Ideas would be welcome.
