Recording my playing
My teacher is going to be away performing during the summer and I won't be able to see him until August, so I want to record myself playing the piece (just audio, not video) I'm working on so I can send it to him and get some advice for improving. However, my current recorder is bad: it picks up lots of background noise, and the audio recorded from it gets scratchy and screechy when I play loudly, high notes, or aggressive passages like the triple stops in Bruch.
Any suggestions on what recorder I can use that has better recording quality?
I use a Tascam DR05 and seems okay. You can spend a lot of dough on recording gear. There are microphones that cost $10,000.

I listened with them with headphones in the first place.
I find my iPhone perfectly fine for practice/rehearsal purposes. I use Voice Record Pro for casual recording.
What kind of recorder are you using now?
I use the Tascam DR-05, same as Paul.
I like those personal recorders, like the Tascams mentioned. I personally use a Zoom H6. You can probably use whatever.
