    Here's a couple of clips I recorded using the settings Scottl suggested but recorded with an AKG C1000-S placed towards the outside of the cone:

    Fuchs ODS 50 factory SLX - AKG C1000-S - placement 1

    Here's another where the mic is placed in approximately the same spot but angled in slightly towards the voice coil:

    Fuchs ODS 50 factory SLX - AKG C1000-S - placement 2

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

    For reference here is the clip I recorded with an SM57 placed in exactly the same way as with placement 2 above (this is a short version of the same clip I posted in another thread on Friday and reposted here for those interested in referencing against the above clips):

    Fuchs ODS 50 factory SLX - SM57 - placement 2

    Amp settings are:

    Bright and Deep are off
    Rock/Jazz set to Rock
    Mid boost is on
    Treble at 11 o'clock
    Middle at 11 o'clock
    Bass at 12 o'clock
    OD-In at 11 o'clock
    OD-Out at 11 o'clock
    Master at 8:30
    Accent at 9 o'clock

    Yeah, after listening back I prefer the SM57 to the C1000-S with this amp. The C1000-S does sound good but it's not a very good fit for a blues tone. I really dig the Fuchs for blues!!

    Hi Deaj,

    I really dig the 57 recording. That sounds a bit more "real" to me.

    Incidentally, I also enjoyed your playing. Good match to the sound.

    Cheers,

    Deaj,
    Well, that's news to me! I thought when the Midboost was engaged the tone controls were bypassed...........doh.

    Where's the Strat Quack track?

    Best, Pete.

    Hi Pete,

    Sorry man, I forgot :eek: I don't use the single coils that often.

    I'll try to get something recorded in the next day or two and post it.

    It's the gain boost that bypasses the tone stack. I haven't really messed with the gain boost much yet.

    In Dumbles, there is usually a .0022uf Orange Drop and 390pf Ceramic in series as the treble cap. Together is normal for 333pf value. When boost is engaged the series connection is broken and only the .0022uf cap is in circuit, thus providing a big midboost. So, the midboost is really just a bigger treble cap.

    These values and method of implemtation can vary from amp to amp, but the concept remains the same.
