Would you know what mics were used? No APIs? I have a couple of neves and thinking micing with my Beyer M88 or MD421 or a 57. Love the M88 tone though. I have an M160 that I could also with a few condenser options but think the M88 could be the one here as I love it's tone..would love more input on any other ways to record etc this guy.
Ie. Iso size or room size even...
I'm trying to specifically recall how the AE setup the Matchless mics to optimize the sound. There are a lot of general amp micing techniques but I know the AE's specifically played around with mic placement for the Matchless. I'll see if I can recall.
I've only heard the Matchless, in person, through Neve pres. I'm sure there are a lot of records done micing it through API but I don't have personal knowledge of that sound.
The sessions I was at, the Matchless was in the live room (big rooms) both at Westlake & Sony. The amp was turned up loud and the guitarist was in the control room.
I'm sure it was a two mic setup but I can't recall exactly, off the top of my head. Possibly close and room (not too far off though). I'll try and ask around. I'm sure there are some Nashville cats who mic it all the time who could give some good specific advice.
I got you covered on a high-end guitar splitter.
