Hey Y’all! This past month of touring has been really inspiring. First off we have to say thanks to you, our fantastic fans for coming out to each show! We love meeting you, getting to know you, and sharing music together.
So now down to the news…In addition to working on new musical material, we have been trying out new sound equipment to create a more intimate and organic sound from the stage.
We have considered many different types and styles of microphones, but found that a unidirectional cardioid condenser microphone best suites our style of vocal blend. Unidirectional mics have been used for years in acoustic music and bluegrass to create a natural vocal blend from the stage so we are excited to add this new set up to our shows.
In addition to the new vocal mic, we have been loving trying out DPA violin microphones for our fiddles. DPA microphones clip to the side of the instrument and hang directly above the bridge to produce a natural acoustic sound and retain the instrument’s integrity. They are all the rage with acoustic players these days, so we had to jump on the band wagon (ha!) and see what they were all about.
We’d like to give a shout out to our friends at Sweetwater Sound for helping us find the best gear! Also, we’d like to say a special thank you to the fans at our recent performances for putting up with us as we tinker with our new sound!
