I spent some of yesterday testing out the Ear Trumpet Myrtle mic in the studio with the Waterloo Collings guitar. The ear trumpet myrtle produces a fascinating sound and we did a quick demo of a few ideas I have for new tracks.

This reminds me massively of early Bob Dylan and its the simplest recording approach with one mic to capture all the sound. The Waterloo guitar sounds fantastic, like a really great old guitar and the myrtle captures vocals in a very different manner to anything I have come across previously. I have a few artists in mind for this project and am planning an EP which we will start recording later this year.

I already have a handful of songs in mind that would work really well with this old school style of recording

Next project idea, old school recording…
