We recorded this using 4 cad mics and garage band in the banjo players poolhouse.  I am playing a Tut Taylor with modified soundwell and Scheerhorn cone.

Green Appalachian Reso Sample


6:18 minutes (7.21 MB)

Tom Warner's L body laminate birch green reso, Scheerhorn cone, Schoonover spider with ebonex/maple saddle.  Exactly one week old, I played into the Mac computer built in mic, using Garage Band.  No alterations, just had to try it to see what it sounded like.  I am not playing anything particular, I just tried to get the lows, the sustain and various sounds this instrument is capable of.  It sounds good just as is, time will only make it better.

Appalachian L Body Koa


3:56 minutes (5.4 MB)

I uploaded a quick sample of the Koa from Tom Warner.  My mixer and gear are in the band trailer, so I only did it with the built in condenser and Garage Bandon the mac.  I was about 1 foot away.  Nothing in particular just showing the sustain and growl up and down the neck.

Butchered this one from memory, my parents used to do this for weddings and shows. Played on a 1935 Oahu acoustic I got from Tom Warner a couple years ago.....sadly only the 2nd time I have had time to pull it out. D tuning.
