Hi, I just set up a new way of recording my favorite marshall profiles, a JMP and a JCM 800.
I fount a way to set up the spring pre amp , and then a hall verb post amp, pretty unusual, but sounding very fat to me.
Some of us have noticed that the spring really weakens the signal , as the original spring model had a band pass taming lots of the amp tone . It's highly musical but it turns most of my profiles to somewhat weaker vintage versions.
My solution was to boost my guitar signal with a boost pedal ( real stuff) in front of my KPA with some EQ ( from the pedal ) . I think the feel and tone is working great here as it brings my marshall tone much more fuller . I really dig the tones , the sound is very natural compared to my usual verb settings.
I wish the new sping will allow us to bypass the bandpass with a tick box or a knob control.
Ash , you seem to like my vocals, I just did a short vocal in the middle, very unusual tone , as I was hooking my SM57 to my KPA to record these : I just had the whole JCM8OO profile still loaded (lots of gain ) , with a -2 transpose on it ( this is the way I record most of my stoner tracks) , it's kinda creepy but I like my vocals here more than my usual clear voice . Once again a very unusual solution , but interesting results.
Now for the clips :
note : the Mid JCM800 section has no post processing on the PM & power chords parts, pretty raw and dynamic.
