I’ve wanted to get a really great, warm, vintage guitar amp for this album – something along the lines of a 65 Fender Twin Reveb, Marshall JTM 45 or VOX AC30… So I contacted a vintage amp collector who happens to live in my area!
After two meetings cancelled and three calls going to voicemail, I let it go.
With the acoustic guitars recorded, edited and sounding great, I was ready to move on to the next step(s)!
My good friend Yotam Ronen had recently purchased a wonderful Gretsch resonator, which I immediately borrowed for the recordings, of course!
It was recorded with an Audio Technica Pro-35 condenser mic, as well as a vintage Grund...
I am joined in the studio by drummer Bar Guzi and recording engineer Itay Haruvi.
Having spent half a day setting up, positioning microphones, getting creative with the room mic placements, setting up projects, building a bass drum tunnel, and most importantly - tuning the drums... we're finally ready to start recording!
