Lyrick boxy and honky on Taylor DN8
Attachment 63Attachment 64
I wrote to you awhile back about the sound quality of my Lyrick installed on a Taylor DN8. I installed as per instruction. You wrote back saying to move the mic towards the treble side of the bridge plate and angle it. Ive tried that and it still sounds honky (BOXY) and just plain lousy.As a previous user commented, sound like a midrange notch filter.
Do you have any other suggestions as to what to do? I feel like I am out $200 and my guitar sound horrible.
Should I try taking it off the bridge plate and move somplace else? Its a fairly expensive guitar.
I have attached 2 picture of 2 different ways I installed this.
Another Taylor DN8 sounds boxy
Hi! I just installed a new Lyric in my Taylor DN8. I installed it per the instructions and the placement is spot on, with firm, flat attachment. I'm getting that hollow, boxy kind of sound as well regardless of presence placement. (Lyric is running into a Daking Mic Pre IV, through MyTek converters into Protools and out of my reference monitors).
You suggest angling the Lyric on the treble side of the bridge plate, as your photo suggests. I will try this, but I was wondering if that will also enhance the low end any? My DN8 has a warm, deep piano-like low end I want to try an capture.
I do have a Venue DI coming in the mail, but this boxiness is not something EQ will fix (as a professional, full-time audio engineer/mixer, I know this all too well).
Any other suggestions aside from the already recommended angled placement? Thanks a lot!
