Orange (any kind)
Mesa Mark IV
as far as mics go.. i usally put a 57 slightly off axis with the cone and then a 421 coming in from the side..also an ae3000 about 3-5 ft away from the cab to capture the highs.
also the mesa stock tubes make the high end sound really fizzy.. check out eurotubes.com
So you plug the guitar into the TS-9, and send the TS-9's out to the Mesa ?
I tried pedals before in this way, and they always seemed to make things worse. But I was using DOD stuff back then.
BTW, I forgot to mention that I now have 2 recording formats: an Otari MTR90 2" tape, or AD16X at 44.1khz into PT. I assume the 2" tape will be the better choice ?
Also, I'll probably want to reamp many of the DI tracks I've already recorded into PT via a Neve 1272. We've been using custom programs on SansAmp thus far to model the sound we're going after.
Pretty good, but not quite cutting it for the real chunky stuff.
Guess when I get the amp I can run the clean DI track outs from the DA16X straight to the amp, or the pedal if I go that route, mic up the amp and smack it to the Otari ?
