Ive tried to cover my legacy with blankets to help reduce volume when recording......but it sounded like crap to me. It almost sounded like useing that direct output (found on the back of the legacy) with just to my ears.........sounded fake and lifeless! I personaly dont like to cover the amp.....I like to let it breath and let the air flow naturaly.

Thats why I made the wooden frame to put the blankets on ;) . If you get the blankets too close to the mic, you can get some weird reflections happening, or the blanket will actually move and get inbetween the cab and mic (and that sounds real bad).

So, has anyone else built one yet?

That's beautiful. *Applause*
I'm going to work on this tone at home. Wish me luck. ;)

Thanks, and good luck!

I have had many visits by the police over the years. My house is under the flight pattern of the local airport, however, and the zone for noise is quite a bit higher due to the air traffic. The only thing that has been able to violate the law was the old F-4's that were in use by the Air Force. Sure, they threaten, but in the end there are no laws that were being broken, and they go away.

Never tried building an isolation compartment like that, but I know the fastest way to get huge, expansive tones is to double track, panned left and right. "Lush" doesn't do it justice, compared to a single track...

or.....depending on how many tracks are availible on the console.....record like 4-5 tracks of guitar and just layer them. I heard once that some smashing pumpkins song on the siamese dream album had like 15-20 guitar tracks .......thats just f#@kin nuts!

I use a digital fostex 8 Track. I sometimes put my practice amp in the closet with a mic. This makes for a pretty large sound. But since I purchased a POD (Line 6), It's all being done straight into the board with effects added later. :D

yeah randy rhoads use to play and record the same thing like three times to put it in one song..just makes it sound a bit wider and by overlapping the tracks it creats more of a wholesome sound..

nice tone

#28 Post by shredomatic » Mon Aug 25, 2003 8:46 pm

Hey Glynn, i have a few Q's for ya. but first, nice tone...just a tad muddy for my liking but still nice.

Do you use EL34's or the stock 6L6's?

And have you ever tried switching the orange channel to Modern and Variable Hi-Gain and tried getting some lead tones from that? I found them to be a lot more 'in your face' sounding, but i've never tried it at high volumes so I dont know how it would compare to the red channel.

Finally, do you have Evolutions in your guitar?

And I am definitley going to make my own isolation thingy you've got there. The sound you got was really tight and focused.

This is my first post, BTW so hello everyone

Welcome to the board, shredomatic!

I use 6l6's in the boogie, have never tried 34's.

I have messed around with the channel clone a bit, but I dont use it that often.

My pickups in the Uni are the stock Blaze pup's.
