Using Aston Mics on Kathryn O’Shea’s Album January 9th


MG O’Shea knew that mic selection would be crucial when producing his sister Kathryn O’Shea’s gut-wrenching acoustic album January 9th. The recordings were sparse and they wanted the process to be record live with one mic capturing her haunting vocals. O’Shea immediately reached for his Aston Spirit condenser and paired it with a Universal Audio 610 tube preamp. The results were exactly the sound he wanted.
