Here's something I'm considering doing, and I want feedback from you guys. I am considering taking amps to a 'real' recording studio - NOT my home setup where I've done all my previous profiles - and having my amps professionally miked with much better gear and a pro doing the miking.
If I did this, I'd obviously be paying the studio and it would be a pain in the ass to move the gear from my 2nd floor amp room across town to profile and then back. BUT it should give much better results than what I have. Charging a small fee for the profiles would be my way of getting my money back and being able to profile more amps than just a few.
Here's some of the amps I own right now that could be professionally profiled (but not all at once! LOL)
'68 Marshall Plexi clone 100 watt
'70 Marshall Super Lead 100 watt
'72 Marshall Super lead 100 watt
'74 Marshall Super lead 50 watt
'87 Marshall Silver Jubilee 50 watt
'88 Marshall JCM 800 50 watt
Marshall 18 watt clone I built/modded
Bogner Ecstasy 101B (2004)
Mesa Mark III Coliseum (180 watt, one of less than 100 made)
Mesa Quad preamp into VHT 2/90/2 poweramp
Mesa first year Dual Recto Rackmount
1960 Fender Concert 4x10 combo
1970s Fender Twin 2x12 combo
also working on a deal for a Mike Fortin modded Marshall
...and may be able to beg or borrow some interesting amps, including modded marshalls like Camerons and Friedmans.
Also if this happens at a recording studio, I could even do some cooler stuff like blend amps - say the Recto and the Ecstasy, or blend microphones, or have access to nicer microphones than what I have now. And again, microphones would be expertly placed, we would have total isolation since it's a REAL studio, etc.
So to recap, don't get me wrong - I'm still going to post here with my home studio versions of amps, but I am considering charging if I take them to a studio to defray the cost.
