Diamond Ric T introduction

Good day fellow audio folk. My name is Richard and I am from Sydney Australia. I sing and play guitar, and work around the clubs - mainly in the suburbs and country areas around Sydney. My first professional work was as a square dance caller in the late 1970s. I have also worked in amateur and professional theatre, and have had vocal training with two past stars of the Australian Opera. The title "Diamond Ric" was given to be by Mike Douglas - original member of the Canadian Doo-Wop group "The Diamonds". Mike and I were close friends. I currently do shows that feature the music of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin etc.
I have always been equally interested in the technical side of music, and have (at great expense!) acquired some gear for my latest project - converting a 20ft by 10ft room into a recording studio. Small I know, but mostly I will be recording with guitar only - or a small combo.
I have a few nice mics - A Peluso U47 tube mic, Rode NTK tube mic and two ribbon mics - an RCA 77DX and a Zephyr Ribbon Mic (Australian equivalent of RCA 44BX). Also Shure Dynamics, EV dynamics and a pair of AKG 414 Condensers.
I also have a STUDER B41 tape machine and console, and a recording lathe that can cut discs at 331/3, 45 and 78 rpm.
I use a DAW for just about everything (Reason 11) and a Focusrite Liquid Saffire interface. I am currently looking at getting a Warm Audio Leveling amp and one of the Pultec equalizer clones.
I am very much looking forward to being part of the online forums, and am anxious to learn as much as I can in order to improve my recording experience.
Thanks for having me.
