    Listening Session

    Hi,

    I got a little comparison test for you :

    I tested a Gibson Les Paul --> marshall vs100 --> 4*1960 Celestion G12-T75-> SM57

    Through:
    A Gyraf Gyratec IX pre-amp
    A Soundtracs MR-24
    A RME pre-amp (fireface 800)

    To make it a blind test, I won't tell you which is which ...

    I wish you lots of listening fun !!

    I think I liked the first one better, as it had less low end rumble, but the other 2 seemed slightly louder, so maybe that;s all I heard as a difference. The last one sounded very clean, but it sounded like it picked up a bit more speaker rumble. For some reason the second one didn't sound quite as clean. I'd be happy with any of them myself though...

    Number one and two sound too alike to really make a decision between those two. Which one you use, one of the first two or the third, depends on the situation and the rest of the instruments/mix. If you need the presence boost of the third one, you should go with it. If not, use #1 or #2, but I'd then cut the bass a little, it's really woofy down there.

    Yeah #1 and #2 are very similar. I wasn't even sure if a new clip started. #3 though has a trashier rock sound, which as nessbass says, could be better depending on the song you're using it for.
