the Dan Auerbach tone

If you have the time, listen to the the Dan Auerbach album (singer of the Black Keys), there is some VERY inspiring tones. It had the same effect on me than the first Raconteurs: a deep analog kick in the ass

Joel Hamilton recorded the Blak Roc album that features the Black Keys backing several rappers. I'm sure he can chime in with what Dan uses. I know Dan has a API 1608 console at his personal space.

I know....

...my friend Mark Neill had a large hand in that record: he recorded a good deal of it, and mixed the entire project. He also assisted Dan in setting up his studio.

Mark's studio in San Diego: Soil of the South - Home

Great response to a lazy Rolling Stone magazine article about The Black Keys' experiences recording in Muscle Shoals: LINK

"Keep It Hid" is a great record, and I look forward to hearing the next BK release tracked at MSS!!!!

Dan sounds like Dan because of his playing.
We used my Supro 12" combo for guitar AND bass on the whole Blakroc record.
with an SM7 buried on the grill, Chandler Germ Pre sometimes, Neve 33114 (in my console) sometimes. Always the Supro, always the SM7... oh maybe one time for bass we had a FET47 or something weird on there. Probably not though. Probably just SM7 the whole time.
The Guitar is the player, in my opinion.
Oh, and dan used his Harmony guitar and a bunch of pedals I have. like a maestro lowpass/fuzz thing. that got some love.

I just got Keep It Hid (Dan's solo album), and Attack And Release (the latest Black Keys offering), and both are brilliant. I like the Black Keys' earlier stuff, but this sounds absolutely magical.

Yes Dan is one of a kind, his feel, tunings and licks are incredible.
I would even go so far as to say he would still sound great through an amp simulation plug in.

Thanks for the info Joel!

He's likes small combos for recording - I read in an interview he has a small Ampeg combo that appeared on a number of records
