Les Paul + Germino=??? (clip!)

Now I was really bored this afternoon and I was listening to the Baggy rehearsal sessions of Jimi Hendrix and the Band of Gypsies. What a great inspiring music, trully unbelievable...

 

So got this idea: I do not own any "proper" fuzz pedals (only the wacko Fuzz Factory :)) but I wanted to try to come close to that fat, blurry quality of the tone of those recordings.

 

I've used my Gibson Les Paul (Voodoo neck bucker, WRC Goodwood bridge bucker, RS kit)-->Mojo vibe --> Maxon SD9 --> Germino (modified) Club 40 -->THD Hotplate --> THD 2x12(V30)--> Shure SM57

 

I've experiment a little bit with with the mic positioning and done something that I would never do: Placed the mic too far away, like one meter from the edge of the cone. That way the low mids jumped out and that "blurry" fat quality that came up was a pleasant surprise! I am pretty sure that if I had a backing track that tone would not cut-through but alone it has some fun!:)

 

BTW, I am not the best Jimi Hendrix clone but I did my best to recreate some of his vibe! Beware, the playing is probably TOO sloppy and the tone too muddy! :D

Thanks:) I know, I could have used my Suhr but I wanted to recreate the vibe of that tone, recreating the exact tone would be impossible!:D

PS- what mic and volume?

 

Thanks bro... You are too kind with me!:) The mic was a Shure SM57 --> VHT Valvulator (used as a tube DI) --> Behringer mixer (cheaaaaaap!) --> Soundblaster Audigy audio card! (a multi million setup as you can see and hear! :D )

 

The amp was not too loud (Hotplate at -12db), still loud enough to shake some walls! :D

Myron, that was it Bro! I think the Fuzz Factory can cop a good Fuzz Face sound, albeit, still different.

 

But damn that sounded great! Nice and FAT! You may not have nailed Hendrix's exact tone, but what you got is awesome sounding!!!

 

One of my favorite style of tones really. And your playing was not sloppy. You could cover Hendrix all day and impress the hell outta people. ;)

 

Excellent stuff!!! :cool:

I am glad that you liked it bro! :) I know that you dig that kind of tones. I don't have any standard setting on the Fuzz Factory, I usually fool around until I find something nice!:cool: I will try yours, be well!

Some of the settings on the Fuzz are really noisy I noticed. But I love it when you hold a note, and the fuzz makes it shift an octave down... Fun stuff... ;)

YOu need to repent. In order to do this you have to say, "Shea is the sexiest man of all time I would love to suck on his man titties."

 

Do that, and all is forgiven! :eek::D:p:D
