Taper: Keo
Taper Notes: some level clipping in the right channel from (I believe) the slapping of the bass strings onto the bass. I lowered the right channel a tad during each of David’s intro’s to try to minimize clipping. Clipping continues through out set but does not distort any music. Levels were a bit low in the beginning due to gusty winds which died down by the end of this set and stayed calm for the rest of the evening. Awesome set by the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience. Enjoy.
