I am thinking of throwing down the money to buy a nice Duduk, since it is a sound that is becoming a lot more common in scores, but I'm not sure if I can fully justify the cost. It got me thinking: I see ads for people who will record drums or guitar or horns or strings online for a small fee, but I don't know if I've seen anyone who does other instruments (like Duduk).
I have a nice studio with nice mics/preamps, and could record live instruments for other people via the internet.
Is this a service that any of you would be willing to pay for? Do any of you do this now (either hiring the musician or playing the instrument)? If It would cost you say $25 for a high quality recording of an actual Duduk for your score, would you be willing to pay this, or would you just stick to software no matter what? How about a Bansuri? Are there other ethnic or uncommon instruments that you would pay a small fee for a pro recording?
