This is a good point. My current situation is working pretty well as it
is because I can run balanced mic cables to various rooms in the house
to get whatever acoustics (or lack of acoustics) I desire.
Recording is usually a two person job anyway. My daughter and I had a
great time trying to determine the *best* way for us to record a
kalimba. She suggested a pencil mic pointed down at the top of it from
above. This didn't pick up quite the tone we were looking for, so we
repositioned it so that it was 3 inches away and pointed directly at the
side of the instrument with the low-end response rolled off. We then
made the recording in the doorway of the bathroom so that the mic picked
up a small but transparent amount of natural small-room-with-tile reverb
from the side.
