LOL. Not bad vids, but the title implying that multiple mics are somehow considered necessary or even the standard usual case, is kinda hilarious. Even more so if you are familiar with the record drums with only 1 (sometimes 2) mics video trope from a few years back, because most people do use at least 5 mics on drums most of the time.

The one crit of the content I would make is that (and this is obviously due to this being, essentially, a Neuman ad) is that the 3rd episode misses 2 important mic types for this application: large diaphram dynamics, and ribbons. It also makes no mention of any mics of any polar pattern other than cardioid (ribbons are usually fig 8, but so are some condensers, and omnis are used on acoustics commonly enough; either condenser or dynamic - in fact some pro engineers have a dynamic omni, such as the vintage/out of prod EV RE-55, as their go-to acoustic mic). That's probably because Neuman does not make a ribbon, and the only LDD they make (as far as I recall) is a kick drum mic .... but they are owned by Sennheiser, which make the MD421 cadioid and the MD441 supercardiod large diaphram dynamics - both of which, the 441 more so, are classic acoustic guitar options.
