About

He brings his guitar skills to famous rock, pop, and jazz covers, and also records his own original material.

  • "I opted to place a stereo pair of the sE5's about 20 cm over the strings: the first mic being placed over the dampers, angled at the hammers to capture the sound of the strings being struck."

    — Adam Lee (Guitarist, Producer, Recording & Mixing Engineer)
  • "The other was pointed towards the middle of the soundboard, which captures the characteristic midrange of these older pianos that is so defining of their tone."

    — Adam Lee (Guitarist, Producer, Recording & Mixing Engineer)
  • "The soundboard is also fractured in places on my instrument causing it to buzz slightly in places, and the sE5's are exceptionally analytical in transmitting this, so this placement minimizes the pick-up of these unwanted sounds, while still capturing the tone of the piano."

    — Adam Lee (Guitarist, Producer, Recording & Mixing Engineer)
  • "Every piano is different, but I'm confident that these microphones will naturally and articulately capture the tone of your piano. They really are a great choice, and have helped me achieve some beautiful recordings - even with my beat-up Bechstein!"

    — Adam Lee (Guitarist, Producer, Recording & Mixing Engineer)
  • "I seem to have a darker-sounding acoustic than most but the guitar I use is capable of a very rich, woody tonality, but at the same time outputs a very airy high end. The full spectrum of these sounds was captured by the sE5's in a way that no other mic I have used has done."
