Recording with John Fletcher
On occasion, I get together with a friend of mine, John Fletcher, to do some recording. John collects old reel to reel machines. The kind they used to use back when recording was just getting started. Amazingly, he has blank tape for these machines and our hope is to some day be able to offer a “bootleg” CD through this site ( for sale, of course). The recording method is simple. A single mic in the middle of the room and me and a guitar, though some experimentation may occur in the future. The idea is to recreate that old warm sounding feel. I’ve written some things just for this and we’re also redoing some of my older stuff. I may even throw in some covers of old songs. We’ll let you know.
The equipment John uses is:
The tape we used last time was “new-old-stock” Audiotape brand "Formula 10". It's a red-oxide acetate base tape that's similar to what was in use during the 1950s (although this tape stock was made in the 1970s).
There is a variety of mics, new and old.
If any body has any vintage mics they might let us use, please email me.
John also dabbles in photography. He is responsible for the photo for this section.
