Recording the Bassoon    

 bassoon recording studio


For the Musician

  • Bring a selection of reeds with you. The reed that sounds good in your rehearsal room can sound quite different in the studio.
  • Make sure you warm up for 5 to 10 minutes before recording begins, especially in cold weather. This lets the tuning settle down.

For the engineer

  • Dampen the space with curtains and sound baffles. Bassoon recordings are prone to one or more notes resonating much louder than others if the space is too live.
  • Be aware that the strongest sound comes from the lowest open finger hole.
  • The most versatile combo of mics is usually a close mic combined with an omni-directional mic elsewhere in the room.
