What’s the best way to record a Didgeridoo?

The most recommended setup is to use a large diaphragm mic (e.g. NT-2000, NTK or K2) placed low and off to one side of the end of the digeridoo. Combine it with a second, smaller mic (e.g. NT3, NT5 or NT55) about a third of the way up from the bottom to capture tapping and vocal tricks.

The department does have a didgeridoo. Y12s, you know what to do….
