Nice! Makes me want to hear some John Fogerty swamp rawk! \m/
Lol, indeed! I haven’t heard many Bivalve clips — digging these!
Any other takers? Post ’em if you got ’em!
You can see the amp in the background.
This is a locally made 40W SS amp (1x12). Sounds cheap & unbalanced but can fill a small room & manageable volume at home. Low end is very boomy :/
Ribbon Mic placed 1 ft away, centre of cone.
Sorry for the bad timing/ lame noodling at the end..
Naw, brutha — sounds pretty good to me. You’re at least playing to a groove — my clips are *literally* just random noodling!
I tried it without the drums first to let the pure tones of my amp come through, felt naked.
Fender BF Deluxe with volume set at 8, treble 7 and bass around 3. Fender Strat with Lindy Fralin Blues specials. Cleaner tone is guitar volume rolled back and distorted tones guitar volume up...Just random noodling. 5 mic's in all. 3 close and a stereo pair.
^ I call a cheat, I hear reverb and OP requested dry Sounds great so will let it slide
Inspired me to break out a partscaster I have, loaded with Fralin Blues Specials. Cheesy iPhone doesn't compare to above, but trying to get a more bluesy tone. Three quick takes, the first one sucked so get's lost in Etherspace.
Ok but the reverb is part of the amp in a Deluxe but... Here's a track with my Strat into a modded '66 Fender Bassman through a THD 212 cab. Mic'd with an AT-4050 (not my first choice but mistakes happen) only. No master volume or attenuator.
Isolated dry guitar track below just because...
The mics are very nicely mixed.
Was the Deluxe reverb turned very loud to get that crunch?
Thanks. Sure was. No master on that amp. Volume at 8. Ear plugs recommended.
I don't get jealous of the gear others use but do feel a pinch when someone has a place to play loud. That's the way it should be.
5e3 kit I built with octal preamps
That feedback is very inviting. Neat build.
It's great you can play that loud.
For sure. I built a bit of a bunker in the basement so that I can let it rip from time to time. It still gets a little loud in the rest of the house but the neighbors are safe
