I've that Shure but the version w/out the meter
The m68 has the same transformers but a different circuit. Not too different from what's in the EHX LPB-1 as I recall.

Just got a Guyatone amp head. It's a clone of a Fender. I'm in love.

Yes. Totally depends on the part being played, but I like getting tuba and sax -like fuzz tones.

Re: Let's talk guitar-amp simulators

Amps, like tape and consoles, are done. Over. Sell them now before the market crashes even further - if you can.

Re: How high do you like your overheads (and why)?

On that note, o/h height is kind of relative to room size/ ceiling height. Lower also tends to do better in smaller rooms.

Re: Monitors - Hanging Instead of Stands

I've been to a couple studios where they mounted monitors to arms extending from the wall - 2.5" metal pipe type deal with an elbow and pivots at the wall flange and monitor. No idea what you'd call this or if it's a "true studio product."

Re: Jack White Live

I've been to a couple live shows recently where the singer basically had to beg the crowd to get off their phones for just one song. Say what you want about luddite-ism, but yeah.

Re: Help Mixing Shakers

So long as we're talking about homemade shakers... some of my favorites are tea balls filled with BBs, wrapped in gauze tape and screwed onto drumsticks to be shaker-mallets. That way your shakes are always perfectly timed with your drum strikes. For recording shakers alone, I do the same as most o...

Re: Help Mixing Shakers

Are there hi hats, pick-attacky acoustic guitars, stuff like that? Decide whether to work in unison or have a push pull dynamic, which will guide your panning/ eq decisions.
