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 (*).
