Rectifier with a Blackstar 1x12 (UPDATED)

Post by fluff191 » Fri Jan 21, 2011 3:58 pm

I just bought a Blackstar 1x12 with the intention of changing out the speaker, but before I did I wanted to see how it recorded.

Mic'd with an SM57. No EQ, just a touch of Comp to level things out and a dash of a HP Filter to let the cymbals breathe. Kind of. 2 rhythm tracks (panned hard left and right).

Amp is my FJA Rectifier, with the EQ all at noon and gain at 1:00.

Celestion Seventy 80:

WGS HM75:

The 80 doesn't sound too bad for a speaker that gets such horrible reviews. I personally dig the WGS ALOT.

Sounds damn good!

Is that a cover or an original? Sounds pretty badass.

RAD!

I love pairing up my recto with different cabs for different flavours of tone. This particular one you dialed in reminds me of John Petrucci's tone in Octavarium.

I was thinking about buying that one but didn't. It's 16ohm and my amp only has 8 and 4... Ended up with a Framus fr112. Which is nice also...

Thank you!

I typically will put the mic about 10 or so degrees off center. I will sometimes use EQ, but this recording only had some very light compression for FX to even things out.

I am in the process of buying my first house so I don't have a place to build anything just yet.

And I wanted a smaller recording-ready setup of the speakers that are in my Marshall 4x12. 8)
