Recording strings (cello, and two violins) was quite fun last night! I used Audio Technica 4040 one on vocal and one on violin once along with an SM81 and without. I also place one of the 4040 behind the player about two feet above her head. Just for grins. I thought overall it turned out nicely and so did the clients.
Just thought I would share this rather inexperienced fun time in me lifesk!
