So I have been spending my free time working on pre-production for my Behold A Pale Horse project. Since I have a large amount of the actual material completed, I figured I should work on crafting what the project is supposed to like.
Finally, after three weeks of messing around; I have found the perfect blend of tones and room and came up with this: a cover of Black Crown Initiate’s, A Great Mistake. I also wanted to try a guitar mic’ing technique that I saw on YouTube. It is supposed to be how In Flames achieved the “Clayman” sound.
This is a quick tone demo. I am working on a few new projects and have spent the last few months really getting my drums and bass to sound right on my monitors in the new house. I am overall very happy with the drums and bass but wanted to take the time to get a solid foundation for a rhythm guitar tone.
Anyway’s.. a few years ago I found Vasili Kartakou. He hand-built me a Colossus Preamp… which is modeled after the old school Peavey 5150s. I promised him a demo of the preamp some time ago and… hear it is… better late than never. This is an outstanding preamp that sounds great. I have ran it through a bunch of different rigs over the last few years and it sounds fantastic through each and every one.
So for the details on this demo – my recording chain: -Ibanez RG7620 with EMG 7/81 in bridge (Tuned to drop A) -Modded Boss SD-1 (TS-9) -Kartakou Colossus -VHT 2:50:2 Power Amp -Orange 2×12 Cabinet -Shure/Greneli SM57 -Focusrite Saffire Pro 40
