I've been having a hell of a time trying to find any info on vintage recording gear commonly used. Maybe some knowledgeable folks here can offer some insight.... In particular I'm curious about the equipment used and the engineering behind the rock recordings of the 60's and 70's. I'm particularly fond of the sound of groups like the Allman Brothers, Hendrix, Neil Young (any album of his from the late 60's to late 70's sounds magnificent to my ears), CSN, etc. What was their signal chain like? I know they were recording onto 1" or 2" tape, but what were they using as far as mics and preamps? Is it the same stuff we're using today?
