Now this may seem like a trivial thread, no pun intended. But here's a real question: what is the best way to minimize noise from clothes inadvertantly brushing against acoustic instruments when recording with a super-cranked open mike? I play acoustic guitar with a stereo mike setup that is quite sensitive, then I run it all through a gain stage in a preamp, so by the time my signal gets recorded any extraneous noise is clearly detectable. E.g., if my sleeve happens to brush the body of my guitar at the wrong instant, it's thereby part of the recording. Unfortunately my sleeve isn't all that musical. I guess the best thing I've found so far is a cashmere sweater--far quieter than cotton. Pants are trickier, though it's a little less of an issue since the guitar just sits there on my leg. So, what do you all recommend? What do the pros wear? This sounds like such a silly issue but I have seriously messed up otherwise good takes because of some stupid stray movement. So I figure someone who does this all the time might have better ideas than I do. Now, now, I can hear all the snarky jokes about recording naked, etc. etc....go on, let 'em rip, but note that I live in Chicago, it's damn cold in the winter, and I try not to have the furnace running in the background while recording. So, humor me here.....and tell me what you're wearing when you go into the studio.
