Hey EV,

Thanks for the reply. Well the I'76 sessions are certainly some of my fav sounding recordings. Would you have used a similar drum setup to that of 'by the sword' on Slash's album? And what kind of bass and snare drum mic was used on I'76?

Michael Tretow got some great drum sounds in the early 70's with ABBA. I know he was a big fan of having a 176N over the kit and bass, then mixing that in with the dry signals. I'76 reminds me a lot of that sound.

Great work.
