Well, that's a basic "one mic" recording that was 4 mics! I use 2 for Chris's vocal (a Coles 4038 and a U47) and then a stereo Aco Gtr setup with a RCA 77 near the bridge and a Gefel 582 near the neck at 90's to each other. The Coles and 47 are locked together and the Aco mic's are directly under them making a (close) equilateral triangle.. the legs of the triangle are exactly the same length i.e. the distance from the 77 to the Gefel is the same as the 4038/47 are from the 77...
Now, my goal on that song was to just use the 47, as we had done on "Whiskey and you" from Traveller.. but, he sang it so dynamically that it was impossible.. very quiet in the verses and loud loud loud in the chorus's, so it took all 4 to do it.
Here's the chain's.
u47 > 1073 > Fairchild 660
4038 > 1073 > Chandler RS124
77 > UA610 > FATSO LEFT SIDE
582 > UA610 > FATSO RIGHT SIDE
There is a AEA R88 in the room, but I ended up not using it.
Thanks!
