I prefer to mic acoustic music, but at home it can be problematic. There're too many extraneous interruptions - monsters (I mean kids), flourescent lights, refrigerators..... But I have had some sessions at home that came out really nice. And I do have an LR Baggs passive Ibeam pickup in my Martin with a Baggs preamp I play that through. Kind of wanky, but not a terrible acoustic pickup.

I'm on a low budget but at recording volumes I don't think you need a big guitar rig. I like the way my Bullet sounds. I do have trouble with noise, hiss etc. I wonder if I should switch to active pickups. Also, who wants to hear my strange little songs? I've recorded over the phone and made a tape delay with two old crappy dictaphones. Any other low budget tricks?
