  1. Hi guys, I’m looking for a good reverb/delay pedal recommendation for bass. I don’t want anything too complicated or with too many knobs (not much of a knob tweaker here), just something basic that sounds good. I’d like it to have settings for both reverb and delay though. I currently play an Orange bass amp and I use two tones: distorted tone and a clean tone. The clean tone is the one I’d like to have reverb/delay out of. I play heavy rock but there are songs where we do breakdowns where guitar player goes clean and trippy, so I’d like a sound to complement. Any suggestions are most appreciated, thank you!
  2. Thank you, we’ll definitely try that. Now that I think of it, it may have been a noise suppressor pedal rather than a limiter that my friend has, not sure if that would make a difference? Either way, now I have some things to try thanks to you guys.
  3. Thanks guys. So not a pedal solution if I’m understanding correctly. More of tweaking settings on amp and guitar then. We are in a small rehearsal room so I’m sure that plays a role. Will do some experimenting and see if that helps. Also my friend with similar issue said he bought a limiter pedal and it seemed to help, not sure which limiter and open to opinions on this as a solution. Much appreciated.
  4. Hi guys, my brother just ought an Orange guitar amp half stack. It sounds amazing! But we are getting quite a bit of feedback with it on the distortion channel. What is the best and most effective way to reduce the feedback, without compromising tone? I'm open to pedal recommendation, or any other solution you think could work. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi guys, I bought an Orange bass head which I love. I’d like to sell my Ampeg 610 cab to get an Orange cab to match my new head. What would be an equivalent Orange model cab to the Ampeg 610 in terms of volume? Want to make sure I don’t step down in volume/power? Thanks in advance!
  6. [QUOTE=Phil O'Keefe;n32528908] The Shure mics you are considering are very good - it's hard to go too far wrong with classics like those. FWIW, here's what I typically use... which varies a bit, in part depending on whether I'm working at my place or at another studio. Kick: E/V RE20 or RE320; for what you're doing, I also really like the Audix D6. I also use a [URL="https://www.emusician.com/gear/yamaha-subkick"]Yamaha Subkick[/URL] too, or a U47FET if the studio has one. Snare: Audix i5 or Shure SM57 or the [URL="https://www.harmonycentral.com/expert-reviews/granelli-audio-labs-g5790"]Granrelli Audio Labs G5790[/URL], which is a regular SM57 with a right-angle body. Occasionally I'll use a vintage AKG D1000E instead. Snare bottom: I normally mic the snare shell from the side - I usually don't use top and bottom snare mics. Rack Tom(s): Audix D2. Floor Tom: Audix D4 or Audio Technica ATM25 or ATM250. Overheads: Varies - sometimes Oktava MC012's (also known as the MK-012) or Audio Technica AT4041's, other times [URL="https://www.harmonycentral.com/expert-reviews/blue-microphones-hummingbird"]Blue Hummingbirds[/URL], occasionally Beyer M160 ribbon mics; lately I've been digging the new Warm Audio WA-84's that I have in for review... Hi Hats: Often I don't need it, but when I do, I usually use the Audio Technica ATM450 or another Oktava MC012 with a hypercardioid capsule. Same with the ride cymbal, if it needs a spot mic... Room Mic: This varies a lot. If I'm at a studio with a good pair of vintage Neumann U67's, I almost always opt for those - sticking with my own mic collection, I often go with a pair of 251's, but I'll often experiment here - especially if we're going for a hyper-compressed "effect" type of room sound. Also, you might want to check out this thread over in my Studio Trenches forum - while it's titled "Drum Panning", we also discuss our drum mic preferences.

[/QUOTE] This is awesome info Phil, thanks so much for the reccs!
  7. uys, I’m interested in purchasing a set of drum mics to record a pro quality album with. Interested in your recommendations. It will be a heavy rock album and the drumming style is in the vein of Bonham, Dave Grohl, Chuck Biscuits etc (heavy hitters). My drum setup is your basic 4 piece setup with a crash on either side, ride and hats in usual position. I play an early 90’s DW collectors kit (14” snare, 22” kick, 13” rack, 16” floor). Using my [URL="https://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear.php?t=Pro%20Tools"]Pro Tools[/URL] rig to record (using MOTU interface & preamps). I’m thinking a 7 mic setup will be good, with additional room mic and hi hat mic as optional: 1. Kick 2. Snare top 3. Snare bottom 4. Rack Tom 5. Floor Tom 6. Overhead 1 condenser 7. Overhead 2 condenser 8. Hi hats (optional) 9. Room (optional) Right now I’m leaning towards Shure as it’s in my budget. Beta [URL="https://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear.php?id=8530"]52A[/URL] for kick, SM57’s for the snare and toms, a pair of [URL="https://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear.php?id=1279"]SM81[/URL] condenser mics for overheads. Hats potentially another [URL="https://www.gearslutz.com/board/gear.php?id=1279"]SM81[/URL] and room mic unsure. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  8. Hi guys, im looking for recommendations for a guitar fuzz pedal. I simply want something that is warm, dark, and not too high end EQ-wise. But also that has clarity and doesn’t get too muddy or ‘wash’ sounding. I play stoner rock music. i bought the zvex fuzz factory Vexter series and although I like certain settings and the warmth, all the glitchy compressed weird sounds that come with it became annoying for me and I’d like something more simple and straightforward. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  9. Thank you guys! I realized now I need to get an 8 channel preamp unit to daisy into my Motu 828 mkiii, in order to make this rehearsal recording possible. My current unit only has 2 preamps in front, and I need more to get the bass and guitar DI into the pro tools rig. I’m thinking about the Motu 8 Pre USB unit, I think it would work nicely in tandem with what I’ve got. The intention is just to be able to capture an idea and record it into the rig as we are in the process of writing it. Makes sense that as you mention I can just go right into the Motu for these purposes and just use the pa as monitoring. i will give it a shot once I get the new preamp going. Thanks again for all the great info, much appreciated!
  10. Hi guys, My band just bought a PA and we’re looking to record our rehearsals into PT while going through the PA simultaneously. I’m running PT12 on a Mac, with Motu 828 MK3 as audio interface. As a PA we have the QSC K12.2 speakers and they’re going through a Yamaha MG10XU mixer. I have vocals into channel 1 of mixer. Before we had the pa, we’d record into PT via our Motu with vocals going into first channel in front of interface. So first question is, now that vocals are going into channel 1 of mixer and through the qsc’s, how to simultaneously record into Channel 1 of the Motu, so we have recorded vocals into PT, as well as vocal coming out of PA? Then we’d want to do the same for our keys/virtual instruments, as well as bass and guitar. I understand how to do one or the other (through PA, or through the Motu/PT rig), but not sure how to do them together. Any leads appreciated! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Its a guitar amp, but I think it can be used for bass too. I just happen to like the tone of this head, that's all. Totally valid questions, thanks for asking.
  12. I reached out to the seller but alas it has sold Too bad its hard to come by, but I guess I'll keep looking.
  13. Yes thats the one. I wish it was available. Nothing on Reverb but some old listings no longer active. Have checked around online but can’t seem to find one.
