Mechanical filters, used on some tracks, comprised of a Sure 57 jammed into a Digeridoo or suitable pipe, pointed at the SN from two feet in front of the kit. Also had an Ahuja vocal mic (East Indian 58) over the kit being sent to an old Teisco 360 guitar amp, in the room behind Dave, sometimes with the tremelo on. Piano was recorded with a Neuman KU100 + 3 AKG 451's, a bit of EQ, no other treatment.
Mostly Neve1073 pre's on drums, bass=SSL G, Piano=vint. API pre w/550a eq +SSL G's on the 451's.
Mixed on SSL G with an Al Smart C1 across the stereo buss.
Hope this helps.

Hey Tchad...

That's great information...very cool - most intriguing! Thanks for passing that along. I was just listening to some vinyl this weekend, one of which was the Low album 'Trust'. Flipped it over, thinking to myself that this record sounds really good (although that is like a "duhhh, what do you's Low!" moment) and saw you mixed it. Had no idea you had worked with Low. Nice work!

Speaking of which, some info on THAT record would be very cool. Man, do I love that band.
