Hello Fellow Axe Wielders,
'old Marshall' profile was uploaded to the exchange.
I put up one profile. Yep, just one. Of all the profiles I've made, I keep coming back to this one. I've played it ALOT in the past few months, so I figured I'd share with ya'll. Now maybe it ain't everyone's cup o' tea, and I'm certainly not saying it is for all styles. It just is what it is. What it is to me is a few things -
-It doesn't seem to have a phase thing going on
-It isn't too dark ( for me at least )
-it has a fun attack, it doesn't seem hard to palm mute higher notes, although it may not be the best solo sound, dunno.
-It is NOT a metal sound, it doesn't not do it for me on my 8 string, but it is designed for a 6 string rock tone.
-I dialled it in and played it alot on headphones. I have not played it alot on actual studio speakers so YMMV.
I just dimed the amp silly, but this time I pulled back a tiny bit and tried to get a 'good tone', by ear- this meant the eq settings got pulled back quite a bit, although the presence was up high.
I mic'ed up two 4x12 vintage marshalls, which is not something I've seen done alot around here ( I think ). The mic's were close in and pointed direct on cone edge. An sm57 and royer 122 on the 70's cab. An EV (dynamic) and a 414 on the 1968 cab. Each cab alone sounded 'ok', but together, they just filled each other out. I was surprised, so I abandoned profiling each cab separately. Together was better. I profiled like 20 times. This was the best capture of all of them.
I hope it brings some happiness to someone.
