The Blumlein stereo microphone technique is named after Alan Dower  Blumlein, who patented this approach in 1931. Blumlein stereo miking  involves placing two figure-8 microphones at right angles to one another  with the diaphragms as close together as possible.

The advantage of this technique is that the figure-8 mics pick up  signals from both the front and back. This produces a natural sound. You  also don’t have to contend with proximity effects (enhanced bass  response due to being close to the sound source) because figure-8 mics  don’t produce these effects. Here are some suggestions for when you  should use this technique:

The room sound is important. Because the Blumlein technique uses  figure-8 mics that can pick up the sound on the other side of the mics  than your instruments, you end up recording quite a bit of room sound  with your instruments. This is one of the reasons that this technique  sounds as good as it does, but your room must add to the quality of your  sound, not hinder it.

Find the best place in the room. Take some time to find the best  place to put the mics. The placement may not be in the center of the  room or the front of the band. Instead, it may be off to one side or  closer to the back or front.
