I Was 64

... last Saturday... Sorry I couldn't invite you ALL to the party, but I had 64 years of memories to fit in! For those who might be interested here's a link to the photos from the day (you'll probably recognise one or two people - including m'lord Meredith who was there in his role as "Mike's H...

Indeed

I saw him a couple of years ago at the Cornbury Festival. Superb!

Aston Potteries, Oxfordshire

What an interesting day...! Realised on Friday evening that Gordon was playing in my neck of the woods the following evening, but knew that it was probably a 'no go' as I'd be in Bath for the day. Then saw that the gig was at 8pm. Some quick mental arithmetic indicated that I could get there comfort...

Re: Mics and Miking

Doh! Sorry Russ... :) Yes, the M3 is a great mic - although I don't have one, I have heard excellent reports. The esteemed Mr Robjohns was very impressed when he reviewed it. I am a great fan of "Rodes" - currently have: 2 x NT3 1 x NT4 2 x NT5 (matched pair) I have also just rediscovered ...

Mics and Miking

Now, where was I...? Ah yes! First-off, Russ and I have both made a mistake about the numbering of the Sennheiser 'posh' cab-mic. It's the 906, not 609 - and a very nice mic it is too. For those on a budget who need to mic an acoustic guitar for live use - and recording at a pinch - check-out the Th...

Re: Guitars (and basses and other stuff) wot I have owned...

To keep this to manageable proportions - I too suffer from MAS (Mic Acquisition Syndrome) - I'll just post about mics for guitars. I've been a long-time fan of the Rode NT5 which I've frequently used for both Gordon and Ray Burley when miking them for non-pickup events. For recording, a matched-pair...
