For the gear geeks among us, we recorded in the same studio we used previously, meaning we used a bunch of vintage RCA 44 microphones. Also, we used the new Campus Five drum kit which is a 1941 Leedy with huge 28" bass drum - it really lays down the thump. As far as guitars went, I used my Eastman guitars, but with a 1947 DeArmond guitar pickup through my 1940 Gibson EH-160 amp (the very, very rare AC/DC version of the EH-150 amp used by Charlie Christian). Wally's bass is a 1940's Epiphone.
