    ...with an SM57 so it's a little on the lifeless side. :rolleyes: Still I was itching to start recording some clips so here's my first effort.

    The amp is a factory SLX. I was using the overdrive channel. All of the controls on the amp are at 12 o'clock, deep and mid boost are on, no amp reverb. The master volume is set so as not to disturb my son who was watching TV in the same room.

    The guitar is a PRS CE24 with Seth Lover p'ups. I'm using the bridge pickup, volume and tone full up.

    I'm expecting a more suitable mic for recording at this volume in a day or two and I'll record a few clips shortly thereafter.

    Comments?

    Sounds great to me too! Good job, Deaj. Love your soulful playing. Very nice manipulation of the tones throughout the take.

    Wow - thanks for the feedback and compliments everyone! I'm really thrilled with the Fuchs - more of an instrument than an amplifier. There's so many more expressive possibilities than with any other amp I've used - both a blessing and a challenge.

    Dont sell your talent to short.

    Its not just the amp my friend. You have done some homework on how to play the guitar.

    I think you actually compliment the amp so to speak.

    Its a great feeling when we find an amp that is like an extension of our playing.

    Thank you for sharing your soulful performance.

    I really enjoyed it. Great playing!

    Amazing about Andy's amp is great sounding
    in any volume. So I can play very comfortably.

    Thanks Tomo!

    It's amazing to me that the tone can remain so expressive even at such a low volume. Best master volume on any amp I've yet played!

    I'm having to learn to pick softer with this amp and I'm discovering many textures and sounds in the process. It's very exciting for me! :)

    Thanks Scott!

    The Line6 stuff is certainly a good leap in the right direction for modelers but they're still lacking in too many areas to be appealing to me. . That said I've never heard a POD sound so kick a$$ - definitely due to the guy operating it! :)
     
  16. Wow! amazing! I cannot use an sm57 to save my life. You got a great sound from your amp and hands and that mic!

    Best

    Thanks John!

    Surprised me too. In fact when I first listened back to the take immediately following I thought "I hate that mic" (nothing but disappointment in the past) but in retrospect it's a good sound. I'll continue to work with it for a while.

    I received a CAD M39 (M179) mic today and tried to record a quick guitar track with it - that'll take some experimenting. The CAD captures vocals well though - very well.
     
  18. If you can take a look at the royer ribbons for acoustic and electric, what u hear is what u get.

    I also like the Studio projects C! mics, very similar to a U87 only they cost $200

    take care

    You're welcome!

    You made sound great. I really enjoyed listening your
    playing. I listened it at least 4 times.

    Yes, Fuchs 50 is best master volume amp. You know
    I have many BF Fenders. I awlays thought master volume
    amps are not good.

    Great amp has very sensitive response so that if you
    pick too hard or pick more... you'll get your clams
    very easliy. That's why it's fun to play this amp.
    You are playing with an amp & guitar.

    Like John said, I agree... You got great tone with
    your SM 57. I recorded all my clips with my 57 too.
    Because I only own that mic. I don't know anything
    about mic. What is CAD M39 (M179) mic ?
    Could you explain it? Actually I need a mic for
    recording my Ukulele.

  20. ditto, royer if u want a versatile ribbon C1 inexpensive but great sounding mic
