We report on a study of perceptual and acoustic features related to the placement of microphones around a custom made glass instrument. Different microphone setups were tested: above, inside and outside the instrument and at different distances. The sounds were evaluated by an expert performer, and further qualitative and quantitative analyses have been carried out. Preference was given to the recordings from microphones placed close to the rim of the instrument, either from the inside or the outside.
