FixIt: Anda Union Engineer Tim Pearce

Jul 1, 2012

Anda Union Engineer Tim Pearce on miking the horse-head fiddle: “The horse-head fiddle is like a smaller, two-stringed version of the cello. One of the main problems I had using a mic on a stand [on this instrument] is that they are so energetic—it was impossible to keep them close to the mic."...
