How to Mic a Bluegrass Band

In this video guide, our founder Philip Graham gives some pointers for bluegrass bands looking to get started with gather-round condenser microphone performance, with road-tested practical advice from IBMA-nominated bluegrass band Man About A Horse.

MICS FEATURED

We started the whole band gathering around a central Myrtle microphone, with a Nadine supplementing on the upright bass. Then we added an Edwina as a spot-mic on guitar, and finally an Edna as an additional spot mic.


ABOUT MAN ABOUT A HORSE

Man About a Horse plays traditional bluegrass instruments, but not always traditional bluegrass. The Philadelphia-based group infuses their sound with rock and pop references, funk grooves, and blues roots. They won the 2018 FreshGrass Band Award and were also nominated for an IBMA Band Momentum Award in 2018.
