Peavey 5150, API, SM57, Lavry AD10...

Hello guys,

Just to share.
just did a quick test of my new converters (Lavry AD-10) during a rehearsal of my band :

This was really quick, done in 5 minutes, we used my 5150, the guitar was an ESP Horizon with EMG pickups. We added a Maxon 808 as a "boost".
The cab was a vintage cab with G12H50 speakers in it, they sound really smooth !! I really like them as an alternative to V30s.

Mic pre was an API 512 going into the Lavry. I don't think the 57 was on the best spot, I just throwed it on the edge of the dustcap

For those interested, same setup but different guitar : BC Rich with passive X2N pickups :

I don't really like DiMarzio for modern rythm tones.

Don't take care to the tuning or playing.

I prefer the one with the ESP.

About that Lavry, do you think it is an obvious improvement from what you used before? What did you use before?

My next upgrade will probably be converters, so I am interested in your findings.

Yeah it's definitely an improvement for me. I used Apogee Rosetta and MOTU HD converters and the Lavry sounds definitely better, incredible dynamics, lots of air and bottom, but no hype in any frequency.
I used to use Apogee Rosetta and MOTU HD converters and I have to say they are pretty good but the Lavry is better, really 3D sounding.

Cool, good for you then! Have you tried the different sound varieties the AD 10 offers? I like the idea of having several options, but I dislike that those are only available for higher sample rates...right now, I am restricted to SPDIF connections and the digital input on my Imac, guess I could then not take advantage of those options.

I didn't try those options for the moment, but I mess with it a bit tomorrow, I can post some samples if you want

Sure, do so if you have the time, I think other people will be interested to hear the emulations as well.
