That's also a good example of tweaking in the mix vs non-tweaking. Pete used an XY setup (vertical), so a pretty traditional sound. Pretty much a bit of reverb on an XY mic setup. Howard has reported here on his pitch adjustment technique, where he (or his engineer) raise the pitch of one side and lower it on the other - pretty drastic! I haven't been able to make that work without hearing artifacts, but it certainly produces an interesting sound.
