    The English horn , Sound Reinforcement mics, and you.
    ok ...in my exp this instrument is a nightmare to mic onstage. I know this is a sax-heavy forum & you crew can belt it out into a SM57 with no prob.

    hthm (how the holey moley :) ) am I gonna get big-house level on this thing, ( let alone onstage monitor level !) when the reeds up here, the bells down there & all the vents are somewhere in the middle :emoji_astonished:

    assume good gear (incl condenser on a powered stage monitor) in a mixed ens: acoustic gits,vocals, keys, bass, trap set.

    suggestions ???

    English horn is most easily mic'd with the capsule facing the middle joint of the instrument. No point in micing the bell, unless you try an AMT type setup with two capsules.
