Bagpipes sound best from across the water.So as long as they stay in Scotland and I remain in Australia, the correct distance is maintained. Cheers,Tim
I have used our horn shields around the piper with two Crown PZM-30s stuck to the wall behind him one high one low, sounded good with HPF and some judicious EQ. It was the only quick and dirty way to keep our tympanis from bleeding into the mics.
Hah! I always tell people that the Pipes were designed to scare enemies in the field from a long distance. In a club I get really scared.
I usually open the lid of the dumpster and put a 57 just above the opening.
But how did you control the hemorrhaging of pipes? A thought to the OP-if your piper is standing next to the drum kit, perhaps one of the overheads could be used to pick up the drones?Then again, the best ever mic'd sound from bagpipes I got was when the piper was three miles out in a peat bog, and the pipes sunk into a few feet of the bog... Best regards,John
I know the obvious answer is "why would you want to" but I need to mic a bagpipe who will be playing one song with a 3 piece rock band for a live radio broadcast.I know enough about the bagpipes to know that I'm not likely to get all the sound from one mic. I just wanted to get some advice from anyone who may have done this before to see what works well or what didn't work so well.
On St-Patties day, a downtown Irish Pub has a big breakfast, then we all go down the road to catch the parade. Pub holds maybe 200, spread out through 1 floor of a 150 year old building. The local Black Watch regiment is good enough to send in 6 Pipers and 2 or 3 Drummers each year. (I get scared when this brigade of rather large fellows comes through the door - in full uniform.... )Then they play a few tunes.Talk about L O U D ..After all, they were invented to be a weapon of war.
