Black Album - James Hetfield's tone - Mark IIC+(+)

Post by decker » Sun Mar 01, 2015 5:44 pm

Hi,

I'm looking for any information about the IIC+ (or IIC++) settings during the recording of the Black album.
We've got a picture of this IIC + here : http://www.harmonycentral.com/forum/for ... 8/1475255-
But the most interesting video about this is the video clip of Nothing else matters at the very beginning : We can clearly see the IIC+ with the V shape graphic eq. Unfortunately, we cannot see other settings.

If anyone has any clue about these settings, it would be really cool if he could share this here.

Thanks.

My best success if setting the C+ up with the "M" curve on the Graphic EQ. That's what I saw on the MontyJay site years ago in a black album studio pic. The rest of the tone knob settings are pretty standard: Treble around 7-8, Bass 2-3, Mids 4-5, etc.

Does anybody know what knobs were pushed or pulled on James Hetfield's IIC+ (during the recording of the Black Album) ?

Thanks.
