I remember seeing some shots with a Sony c37P in front of the acoustic. I love these guys. Check out their first album, I think it may be better.

I got to assist on this album. I could answer some questions, although the real experts would of course be Rob Schnapf or Doug Boehm. Maybe Robs lurking around here...

Awsome...Looking specifically for the mic/pre combo for acoustic guitar on "Thank you" and the mic/pre for the vocal also on it...

Also curious what was the mic's/pre's they used for micing their fenders on that record...The elctric sound on Robinson Curusoe is great...

as i mentioned in a previous post, i think they're great, but i gotta laugh when i look at that second photo posted above, it's like i'm looking at paul mccartney from behind playing guitar (circa late '67 - early '68) and keith richards playing bass (also circa '68). just a semi-funny aside, now back to the regularly scheduled thread.

i know there was the api and a la3A involved.
63 epiphone texan doubled.
the mic would've been either a lomo 19A9, a 67 or the super hotrodded 87 with inner tube electronics and a stephen paul capsule.
thats about all i can remember, scott you got anything to add?

I believe vocals and acoustic were all on the Lomo 19a9. Im sure that all the vocals were on that. The acoustic was through the api and the vocals went through a v72 or v76, cant remember which one.
acoustic definitely hit the la3a, while the vocal might have hit the tube tech? cant remember on that one, but im sure about the tele pre.

those pictures of the redwalls were shot in studio one at sunset sound.
that was a record company idea but we did no recording in that room.
all the overdubs were done at sound factory and mixed at the pass.
drums were recorded in studio three at sunset.

Man, I hate it when I find that out. Funny since I was right about to ask if that is a glyn-johns type drum set-up, or if that's just a mono OH.

Thanks for answering all these questions, love your work. I like the new album a lot as well, I believe it was done by Tore Johannson in Sweden, sounds a bit different than their earlier stuff to me.

Great band too, I'm looking forward to interviewing them for my radio show this Thursday, actually.

That is a phenomenal album all around- great songs, killer sounds and fab singing. I saw them at TT The Bears in Cambridge and they flippin' rocked. As a connoisseur of 2 guitars, bass and drums Beatley rock bands, I give the Redwalls two thumbs up.
