I use a variety of high quality microphones; including lots of tube and ribbon mics. I use very little in the way of effects etc but have some... I rely on good mic placement and a solid understanding of acoustics to obtain a very accurate representation of what you do. I particularly love good drum sounds, they are obtained by using the desirable effects of the room but most importantly proper tuning and good skins.
I guess I cater more to the artsy/experimental musician but am willing to work with anyone who is first and foremost a quality human being, and is willing to have a raw but sonically accurate and viable recording.
My gear is portable and I will come to you to record, be it your home, garage, jam spot, warehouse, barn.....you get the picture. As long as the place is secure, I will keep my gear there until we are done the project. We can record fully live if you would like or we can piece everything together depending on time and the place we choose to record.
I will not charge by the hour. Rather, we can negotiate a flat fee and we will work together until you are happy (within reason). This is fun for me and I get great personal satisfaction from doing a great job.
