I decided to create a new thread for this,
and post some clips of the different tones I can squeeze out of my new amp smile.gif

I have never mic'ed up amps before,
so this is my first time trying to unveil the secrets of amp mic'ing smile.gif

I use 1 or 2 Shure Beta57a microphones for this,
recording mono or stereo, depending on what I need.

The Shure Beta57a microphone is a tad more expensive than the regular Shure SM57 mic
(which is almost the industry standard for micing guitar cabs).
I like this one better. It has more top end sparkle, sounds clearer and more defined.
This is my opinion of course, but you can read more about the differences HERE,
and even check the soundclips to compare the two smile.gif

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soundclip 1 (Clean with backing): Attached File  Clean.mp3 ( 4.12MB ) Number of downloads: 192

Soundclip 2 (Clean without backing): Attached File  Clean_guitars_only.mp3 ( 4.12MB ) Number of downloads: 182

Soundclip 3 (Heavy with backing): Attached File  Heavy.mp3 ( 2.03MB ) Number of downloads: 184

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My setup for these recordings are as follows:

Computer:
Apple Macbook Pro

Guitars:
Nik Huber Redwood guitar
Nik Huber Junior Korina guitar


Amp:
Reinhardt The 18

Distortion Pedal:
R3FX Dual Resistafier

Soundcard:
Steinberg/Yamaha MR816 CSX

Microphone(s):
Shure Beta57a

DAW:
Steinberg Cubase 5 Studio

Effects:
Various (a bit of this and a bit of that) tongue.gif
Usually just a Compressor and a Equalizer.


I will update this thread with more soundclips as they're recorded.
Hope you like what you hear, and that my limited experience with mic'ing doesn't shine through too much biggrin.gif

Any questions? Just ask!
Any comments, good or bad, are welcome!

Very, very nice playing biggrin.gif

The clean part sounds very emotional, it would make a great progression I think.
The heavy bit sounds alot like metallica, and also very good smile.gif

Great review Paal, tones are great to work with! smile.gif

I would like to hear mono samples as well (without any mixing). That would give a dose of authenticity to the whole thing.

Thanks mate smile.gif

Sure, I'll record some mono samples as well.
I'll post them in the next few days, and PM you when they're posted smile.gif

I'll try to record some clean, crunch and heavy tones..
