Hi lads,

this has been asked some times I guess.. Still I didnt find proper answers..

I am planning to record some songs with whistles, low and high. I have a large diaphragm condenser microphone (MXL 770) to do the job. I tried some recording with the low d, and wasnt happy with the results.

So, how to properly mic a whistle? Maybe in front of the fipple isnt the best way since a lot of breath noise and stuff will be recorded. Maybe little bit above the whistle and mic pointing downwards? What about the distance?

Thanks for any insights.

I only tried recording a whistle once, a low D, & I used a USB mic plugged into my computer, about 12" away from the middle of the whistle, It came out sounding OK.
