For MICROTONAL METAL we have recorded with four waterphones, in the centre is an authentic MEGABASS Waterphone designed by Richard Waters (RIP) and built and tuned for us by Brooks Hubbert.
On the right is an Ocean Harp and on the left two models of the AquaSonics clones…. While the MegaBass model is in a league of its own, each model has its own unique character, so we’ve bowed, struck & applied friction mallets to them – all captured using two Barcus Berry contact mics and an ORTF MKH8040 pair of mics…. 

Incredibly responsive acoustically as well as for granular processing, while also containing many elements invaluable for developing uniquely characterful stings, textures, semi-musical and/or atonal components, transitions or abstract, magical or fantasy material…
