I've put together just a small dosage of the 4 mics that we guitar players seem to always be asking about; the SM57, the Audix i5, the Sennheiser e906 and the Fathead 2. Of course, there are more, but I don't have 'em, I have these. So, the setup is this: *Heritage H-150 (with kind of old strings btw) *Guytron FV-100GT (B channel obviously, about 9 O'clock on the volume, so that's about 2 or 3ish) *Great River ME-1NV preamp set flat (meaning no polarity, impedance or loading) *Apogee Duet into Logic Express 8 using an iMac Mic is right at the grill cloth midway between the dust cap and the edge, NOT off axis, straight on. Also, no verbs, no EQ, no compression, NOTHING. You even get some clicks, pops and clipping. So needless to say, this is nothing fancy here guys, I just play 4 bars of 'Two Minutes to Midnight'. I chose that because it's a quick and easy riff to play consistently for your distorted guitar needs. I do however have more amps and guitars that I'll happily put together something for someone if they have a real dire inquiry about something. I'm no studio player, but I can probably make a clip decent enough for you to decide if you're looking for a particular piece of gear. Let me know, I'll gladly help if I can. So, here you are: http://homepage.mac.com/shackelmac/FileSharing1.html And out of the gate I'll answer what will probably be the first and most popular question. The best/closest representation of what I was hearing in the room while playing is somewhere in the middle of the 906 and the Fathead2. On another note, I DID change the impedance on the Great River (up to 1200 I think) because the folks that make the FH recommend that you run it at 1000 ohms. When I did that it shaved a small amount of woofiness off...kind of tightened it up *just slightly*. Probably the best sound all together, but in the interest of fairness, everything else is equal for all of the mics. Enjoy.
