The recording equipment used was stereo mikes with Microtech Gefell
M300s or a Neumann TLM 103, Great River MP-2MH preamp. Earlier recordings
used a Delta 66 AD/DA PCI card. Later I switched to a RME Hammerfall AD/DA card
as well as a faster computer. The aim is a natural sounding acoustic guitar so
software processing is kept to a minimum except for some reverb on some songs.
Guitars are either a Mark Blanchard Bristlecone or a Collings C10 Deluxe (*).
