In the studio

Here is a pic of recording Mando in the Home Studio. Yes, I live in a train wreck, but I am mentally organized. The mic was a Neumann KMS 84, which I could never get into, some people love them, but it has never worked for me. Must be the Mic Pre. Also in the pic is a U89, which we used for vocals in almost all of the recording.

Wictor being Wictor. That is an Apex 460 with a 6072 tube and a MXL 2003b capsule. Was trying for low gain the get rid of the grain. Good instrument mic, too much air for vocals though.
