Which is which by Garrett Bockman on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free
I thought since Chris has been posting Raw tones in the recto thread I'd post some up as well.
Tones aren't the greatest buy I am still in the process of breaking in the v30s in my stilleto 212. I thought it would be a fun comparison even if the tones probably aren't what the majority of you guys like.
Jackson Student Soloist (Rosewood Fretboard) w/EMG 81x
Jackson AT (TOM) w/EMG 81x
Jackson AT (Trem) w/SD Custom
Can you tell which is which?
I had it EQ'd for my #1 (The TOM AT) and for the sake of the comparison I kept it the same for each pickup. If I had EQ'd for the other two seperately that would have defeated the purpose of the comparison. Two tracks on each, panned left and right. No post.
Gear is a Rivera K-tre into a Mesa Stilleto 212 mic'd with a sm57, the speakers aren't quite broken in yet. All guitars have the same setup and same strings (EXL116s). Of course the 2 ATs are 24.75 and the Student is 25.5.
And yes, I do like grindy/nasty metal.
I must say I was really surprised that the one I liked least in the room (least aggressive) might have sounded the most aggressive when close mic'd, I'll see if that holds true when the v30s get fully broken in and I start to see what tones sound like in a mix.
