...as it should be! :)

In a fit of utter brown tone obsession I dime'd the 12,000 all across the board (except the bass which was at 5) and at the risk of being thrown out of my neighborhood I found what I was looking for. Due to the extreme volume I couldn't do many takes so after all my hard work I came up with a measly 20 second clip that only comes out of one side! :bitch Mistakes were made in the recording process but what comes out of that one side is good enough to post (I think). I'll run the Phantom again (and always) but it was really fun to hear what was hiding in there ya know what I mean?

The Fat Head mushes up the bass a tad (I should have used the SM57) but rest assured in my studio it sounded very brown :)

Stock hard tail Peavey Wolfgang>Metropoulos 12,000. Nothing else at all not even effects (although reverb would have been very cool to add)

Yeh, do more! That sounded great. Why did that sound so much better than the Phantom clips? I thought the Phantom was supposed to be so transparent (yeh yeh, speaker breakup blah blah... but they sound pretty different no?)

Seriously...it's the speaker breakup. Those speakers are 1968 Pre Rola Greenbacks being pushed nearly to the limit...there's no way they're not going to let their presence be known :) With the Phantom set to say -4 or -2 the amp sounds pretty much the exact same way because the speakers are really moving at those setting too. It is darker at lower db settings though.
