    Ok so I'm tired of the overly nasal sound of the PXR4 internal microphone. today i bought a SM57 and a ART preamp. I did a quick clip with the Thunderbird amp and the Chapin (bridge (tele) pickup), the Thunderbird has it's inbuilt "dampulator" on step 2 of three (the kids gets violent othervise :mad: ) so volume is not that high.

    So better than usual?? No Eq or comression, i want to avoid that on clips, if possible.

    Yeah, I do think it is an improvment Anders :) ... but what really matters are if you are satisfied. Nice Tele tone there.

    Awesome tone. I guess I need a thunderbird now too.

    Is it just me or is something clipping out?

    There is a bit of digital clipping that appered when i converted down to 128mb.
