        Ok. Got something I dare to upload:



        Took six attempts to get it there. That's not an easy track to play over indeed! Great practice.

        EDIT: Just listened through other songs. Damn great stuff! Made me think I should have went for wettier sound too. Seems to fit in much better.

          What gear were you using on the recording? I kind of like the basic cleanish tone you were getting . . . but yeah, a little 'verb or delay wouldn't have been out of place. :P

Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy.

            Strat Middle SSL-5 to Egnater Rebel 20 with G12H.

            I actually had reverb there, but turned it down because it sounded excessive. Only realized later on it wasn't reverb in earlier recording, but the fact I had forgot to dial out monitors when recording causing the effect...

            Haven't been recording with this cab before and not really digging tones I was getting. I need to revisit this in sunday if I have time.

                  I was particularly fond of the delay.

                      My Schecter Blackjack (A459n/RCUOA5JB) into my Spidervalve out through my vented closed back 2X12 with a Texas Heat/Swamp Thang combo. The preset was called "Black", and consisted of a jumped Plexi model with a simulated Chandler Tube Drive in front. Some sort of hybrid digital/analog chorus (when used) along with a tape delay sim (tap tempo). Recorded with my Zoom H4, one condenser about 6' back and a dynamic mic on the Swamp Thang close up.

                        I'd really like to pick up a Swamp thang someday ..killer speakers. A guy I know has a fantastic sounding 2x12 with one of them paired with a 'Screamin Eagle I think it was

                          Eminence recommends pairing the Texas Heat with the Swamp Thang. Now I understand why.
                          Not to mention that they are each rated at 150 watts RMS.
                          Which makes my 2x12 a 300 watt cab.

                            Yeah, that's the usual pairing & it sounds killer, but the screamin' eagle, which does'nt really seem to be a that great sounding a speaker on it's own (I think it's even discontinued?) works really well in that cab...

                              That's cool.
                              Judge with your ears.
                              I think that what made me stay away from the Eagle was that it was only rated at 75 watts.

                                Oy. The list of submissions needs to be updated (or are you just waiting for me?? LOL???).

                                Quite surprised at the lack of submissions given the number of members there are on these forums. To date it’s pretty much only a few of “the usual suspects” (and I mean that in a nice way I assure you) that have contributed.
