Visit from Billy of LACG....AlmaNova's favorite guitar shop!!!

For those of you who are not familiar with the amazing shop, Los Angeles Classical Guitars, we thought we'd introduce you to what they have to offer.  It is a classical guitar haven with everything one would need!  At the head of the operation is Billy Arcila, a great guy and friend of many years who is extremely knowledgeable about all things guitar.  He recently remodeled his guitar showroom where he houses some of the finest spanish classical guitars out there.  If you are in the market for a great classical guitar, don't forget to check out what LACG has in won't be disappointed!

Here's a recent photo of Billy meeting little Rocco!

In addition to running his own business, he is also a great guitarist himself and composes some wonderful pieces for the guitar....enjoy the video below......

Almer and Microtech Gefell microphones

I recently played a few recording sessions using M221 and M300 Microtech Gefell mics.
They sound amazing and I was so impressed with the warm, rich tone they captured from my Martin OM Custom and Kenny Hill Stand-Up Signature.

When using these mics in pairs they have an exceptional depth and transparency.  I have been looking for this particular sound and am thrilled to have finally found it!  Since I'm playing all different styles and guitars, I need something that is able to capture my varying attacks on strings, different tone colors and strumming styles.

I'm very happy to have the chance to use them and they will be my preferred mics from now on!

Here is a photo from the session with my Martin!
