    My main purpose in recording myself is to see if my tone sounds worse than the way I hear it myself . . . and if so, in what way. The only difference I hear is (as I said) some slightly airy tone on the recording when pointing the bell straight at the recorder from 3-4 feet. Sounds like that may not be a problem so perhaps I have no more need to record myself for tone quality. BTW, I don't do YouTube.

    Here is a compromise - listen to yourself when playing when the sound is picked up by
    A) clip-on mic, or a
    B) mic placed where the audience would be

    You would need a set of isolating earphones, a limiter and a mic preamp.

    You could use the Zoom recorder with a long extension cord for the earphones to do plan "B", possibly with the Zoom's internal limiter.
