    My buddy Will asked me to help him with his NPR tiny desk contest video. Did the recording with one EarTrumpet Edwina and a 451 on the weissenborn, since I'm sitting while the others are standing (distance). I kinda like the mic, it does a good job picking up the off axis Bass. It does look good, too.

    NPR (National Public Radio) has a video series called "tiny desk concerts", artists play "stripped down" performances in NPRs offices in front of one single mic (a Sennheiser MKH 418 stereo shotgun I believe, sometimes they mic other things as well). There are many totally awesome performances, well worth checking out.
    They have had this contest for a while where you submit your own video, featuring a desk and an original song. The winner performs in a video and gets some prize.
