taping equiptment____; these shows were recorded with a toshiba portable cassette recorder,
with an external stereo clip on (t bar looking mic)that was covered with stocking material,
experimented at band re- hersals, to find mic was best used like this to capture sound,
difference was a warmer not as harsh sound, im a fan of bass in aud recordings and the stockings
helped with bottom end... maby not for everyone, i strongly suggest tapers experiment with there equiptment.
the mics were richer in the mid frequencies without the stockings around them. so i had to find a way of getting more of a balance of high.mids@lows,
say again, stockings wrapped around mic ( roughly 8 to 10 mm thickness around mics ) good luck.. boyacrobat.....

sound;_______ the mics did clip in the mid frequencies giving the recordings some natural overtones adding to the recordings atmosphere, i tried to eliminate that as much as i could, the mic input sensitivity switch on the rec device was set to high, there is crowd noise of course but it adds to the shows atmosphere,the recordings have a something
about them that makes them rather unique i feel, at the end of the day, they are what they are, JOE O HERLIHEY certainly
pulled an awsome sound out f.o.h. at the tennis centre those melbourne shows,
this show my 3rd rec attempt was, a good step forward from previouse attempts
