VHII Bridge - Modded Marshall Plexi, Guitar Shop Riff
« on: October 18, 2005, 07:32:15 PM »
Guitar: My Custom Strat (ash body, ebony/maple neck)

Amp: Marshall 1959SLP RI (modded by me  :twisted: )
         Marshall 1960A cab

Mic: Shure SM57 (dead center of bottom right speaker, approx 1.5 inch away from grille)

I thought I'd post a soundclip of the pickups as I've been messing around with this amp, the 100 plexi is at "loud bedroom volume" level, i.e. loud but not loud enough to annoy the family to make you turn it down. It's a PPIMV control I fitted to reduce the volume, not an attenuator.

The riff is Smoke On The Water, played a bit differently to highlight the sound characteristics of the amp/pickups. Hopefully putting the pickup through an all valve Marshall should help the natural tone of the pickups shine through a bit more. It's all I could think of playing right now as the guitar is missing it's B string...

If you put it on pretty loud, it sounds a lot closer to how it did in the room before it went through the SM57

Sounds like the post phase inverter master works for you - I swapped back from it on one of my JCMs.....bass turned to mush!

the one I've got in now sounds great, there's quite a lot of different versions of PPIMV's around, it's worth trying some different ones
