One thing I forgot to mention was that the khushtar came in a very rustic handmade wooden case that was lined with fleece. It was shipped directly from Western China.

Will check those out, thanks Forrest. Excited to hear of your next project, any more details forthcoming?
The Khushtar seems amazing, found some photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/23149384@N03/2332715387/in/photostream/

This is it...
My piano is from the late 70's or early 80's - the last model year for Yamaha uprights still made in Japan before they moved production to N. America. My main bass is a G&L L1000 and I think it's early 80's era. My other bass is an earlier 70's Gibson Grabber. My beat up almost doesn't work bought from my ex-boss' husband who found it in a pawn shop Gretsch solid body electric is rumored to be 1959/1960 era. My trumpet was bought new when I was in 5th grade... :-)
Immersion said: "one thing for certain is that it brings "clarity" into the mix, since you hear the whole dynamic range more clearly..."
I wouldn't say this is certain. The perceived clarity is perhaps simply a result of a volume increase. If compression reduces the dynamic range then its not adding clarity.
I do quite a lot of mastering, and I'd say that a bit of well-placed EQ work brings clarity to a mix.
Pleasure, Forrest. I've made it even more painless (emusic doesn't give you full-length track samples from what I recall) with a couple of tracks - not necessarily the best... first and last, in fact - here:
(Now playing: Manual - Confluence)
I've been listening to The Zombies a lot recently and in particular their album, "Odessey and Oracle" (Yes, the title was misspelt: long story there). They are basically one of those bands that was just missed by the public, and never got the recognition they deserved. If you're into psychedelic 60's baroque pop, then Odessey is one of the greatest albums you're likely to hear.
