Thank You @wforwumbo 4/2/98 Twist was one of the first Phish jams I became obsessed with. For a few months, I would play it as I fell asleep. When collecting, I only thought in terms of the microphones (Schoeps, Neumann, AKG) but, obviously, there is a lot more that goes into the final product. I appreciate your efforts. SBD is great, but if you truly want to replicate the feel of a show, you have to play a solid AUD.
The three most important factors of ANY recording, in the studio or in live taping: location, location, and location. There are MANY different tapes I’ve heard from the same venue with the same microphone capsules (granted the downstream preamps/converters also impact the end product...) in different spots and they sound radically different. There’s more to a tape than just the mic brand.

In the studio, I’ve made great recordings with just a pair of cheap beat-up SM57s, and recordings I wasn’t happy with using AKG 414s. The price disparity is huge, but it’s all about where you stick the microphone at the end of the day. is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
