Topic: Need some fresh electric guitar recording ideas

I haven't heard the late Waits' records. But the way I got a nice room sound with a guitar that was pretty interesting was by having a 57 with a couple of SDC about 15 back 10 feet up in stereo spaced pair. I ended up getting a nice mid range that stuck out beautifully in the mix without tweaking eq...

You could also check out a place in Van Nuys. I don't remember what it's called. Funny, it's near my house. I've been in there once and they looked like they had quite a variety of vintage fender stuff. It's on Van Nuys Blvd one block north of Magnolia Blvd. It's around 5300 Van Nuys Blvd. (this is ...

This is precisely the thread that I almost just started... I'm in sort of a weird place. A recent grad, I worked in the school of music's recording studio all four years and got pretty comfortable with the Focal Twin6 Be's. My current home setup leaves a lot to be desired (especially when I remembe...

Truthfully, I have not listened to too many pairs of "monitors" for extended period of time. I've had experience with a couple models from Event as well as the Mackies 824s. I always felt like I was sitting in the dentist's office. As for consumer stuff, I've mixed on JBL control 1+ (I highly recomm...

The question really should be: "Active or passive?" If passive... I have a pair of JBL Control 1 Plus Monitors as my backups for my pair of NHT Classic Three, by the way, never forget your console's stereo fader up when you turn on the power supply. :cry: Anyways, the JBLs are not the greatest monit...

I can't tell. But I love how painfully simple this thing is. The big qualm that I have with the ADA8000 is the preamps....this could be a nice alternative.

L-C-R is my thing. I have found it helps with the intonation discrepancies.

Epiphone Casino. I need to get Lollar pickups, but even now, it feels like a million bucks. Though I do want to get a re-issue 60s deluxe tele or build one myself.

I have an S20. Don't like it much. Sort of murky. I like my Altec 1589B better for that sort of sound-has more character (yes yes I know about the previous thread on Altecs, but it looks so pretty) . Oh, never mind...Altec 1589B pres just shot up to $1500 a piece. :wink:

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. You can always sell it for the same price if you don't dig it.

Dropped my BLUE Mouse the other day while taking it off the bass drum mic stand. My jaw dropped for a second, but it was fine. Dropped my BLUE Baby Bottle while it was in its velvet pouch onto concrete. The front grill fell off. I shit a brick, because it was the nicest mic I had at the time. Luckil...
