Twisted Tubes Session


Hi again!

I'd like to say a big thanks to SSR Studio Assistant and Tutor Adam Stokel for engineering an Advanced Studio lesson last week with Twisted Tubes for my Audio Engineering Techniques and Technology students here at SSR Manchester in our Spirit Studio.

Twisted Tubes is a new and exciting group based in Manchester. With their unusual instrumental set up (saxophones, trumpets, trombone, tuba and percussion), they perform a variety of original arrangements from pop covers, to jazz standards. Performing regularly at various bars and festivals around the UK They are rapidly increasing a strong following.

This session was a very different recording experience for the students and it also gave them a chance to see how a Decca Tree Microphone technique can be used!

Many thanks to the entire band too who gave up their time to come to SSR for this session. They are returning to SSR this week to record again with us and once the tracks are mixed I will post them here on the blogs so you can all check them out...

There are lots of pictures from the session over on our media page - take a look!

You can also checkout the band's website or watch the video at the bottom of this post for an idea of their vibe!
