VA@82A (Virtually Acoustic)


VA@82A is the last hour of a Sunday Session. Virtually acoustic, with essential amplification only. Things like electric piano, electric bass, electric guitar require amplification at an acoustic level, no DI’s, a drummer with a light touch.
Recordings are with a variety of vintage mics.
