    Need advice on my tone !!!

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I did some experimentation with my SM57 and my DP-01 Portastudio last weekend. I tried to capture the best guitar tone as possible comming from my amp (instead of going direct). So I would like to have comments on the results. Ive been playing guitar for 8 years but Im fairly new in Miking techniques so tell me what you think of my tone.

    Here is the link:

    Cheers

    IMO The tone was good, but to me...the drum kit sounded more present. Are you using a pre amp? I use an SM57 to mic my amp. But the mic runs through a good pre amp..neve, avalon, focusrite, oram, manley etc.for example. If you use a good one it makes a huge difference. Don't bother with a cheap one.
