Happy Valentines Day!!!


Only you...

Basil Valdez wrote a good song and you deliver it with heart and soul. Good ups. Great sounding guitar. What vocal mic do you have there? It really captures the full dynamics of your voice.

Hi Richard, Thanks for the

Hi Richard,
Thanks for the wonderful comments.
This mic is a condenser mic, made by Ear Trumpet Labs based in Portland, Oregon.
The model is "Edwina".  I love this mic.
Again, thanks Richard!!!

The model is "Edwina"

People will look at that subject line and think there is a picture of a model in the comments here. LOL. I never heard of Ear Trumpet Labs. I will have to go to their website and look about. I use a $200 Audio-Technica AT3035 cardioid mic (w/phantom power) for both voice and guitar. Too lazy to switch to my instrument pencil mic when doing guitar tracks. It appears you are recording voice and guitar in one pass. You have very good pitch, phrasing and guitar synchrony. You are "in the groove."

Greetings Richard. Yes, I am

Greetings Richard.
Yes, I am recording guitar and voice in one pass, like a "live performance".
I am using the "Edwina" for vocals and Shure SM 58 for guitar, but both mics still pick up guitar and voice.  Thanks for your kind words, especially on pitch!
