We recorded – my ex-sound Engineer – Chris – and I – in the same place where I had recorded the AC/DC tone video.

Three microphones were used, a condenser Neumann U87 and two dynamic Shure SM57s, one on the front of the cab and one in the back (to capture more bass and the reverb of the room). (more…)
