Stormy Mondays.... clips inside both clean and crunchy
« on: April 24, 2006, 08:27:57 AM »
Hello,

Here you are... some clips recorded with my beloved black LP standard from 1991 w/ bigsby and a set of Stormy Mondays.


Basically I plugged the SMs into a Roland MicroCube 2 watt amp ( digital ) then into a Behringer Vintager preamp, then into a Edirol UA5 sound card and then into a iMac G3 @ 600 running Logic Audio. The reverb was provided by the Microcube. :lol:

This first clip is recorded using the Fender Twin reverb emulation of the Microcube. Please forgive my sloppy playing but I thought I was going to have another chance to record this past weekend but it wasn't the case.

Please crank your pc speakers a bit as the clip was recorded a bit quieter than I intended.... :(
Anyway....here is the clip.

This second one features two tracks: one plays rhythm and the other plays lead. It has some kind of pseudoAC-DC vibe to it.

It was recorded using the bridge p/u of my black LP and the MicroCube provided the Marshall Plexi emulation. Again the reverb was provided by this 100 quid amp ( amazing !! ).

As with the previous one you'll haqve to crank the volume a little bit as the final mix ended up a tad weak volume wise.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!!

Cheers!!! Both are played fingerstyle so handling noise is a bit higher than usual.

Great to hear a bridge SM clip! Nice cutting sound - you don't fancy swapping that bridge pup for a Nailbomb do you?




seriously



 :lol: the offer's there anyway.

More to come.....my Matamp's ready tomorrow, and just the other day I tuned down to drop C#, neck SM, cranked the gain on my OCD (complete with fading battery), tone knob full up, into a slightly crunchy AVT 100 and got the most ridiculous doom/sludge metal (or whatever its called these days) tone. Really awful in a really good way  :D Gypsy jazz/mellow lame jazz/funk/blues will go up as well.

very very nice- loved them both. That clean one is just how I would love to have a 'Paul sound. Great for blues- cranked up as indeed you said.

Nope.... I'm not a metal player ... the SM gives me enough "meat" when I need that extra dirt.

That is a great vintage tone. Like what you hear on albums from the 50's and 60's. Very,very authentic.
