    So I'm 98% sure I found out about this here, but is anyone still doing/doing the Fredman technique? I just ordered one more SM57 and this: https://www.wilkinsonaudio.com/product/fredman-mic-clip/ Curious to see how it sounds. Currently doing a SM57/e609 combo which is cool.

    I'm kinda getting tired of the speaker sim shit, because while it can sound great, I still prefer a real mic. Maybe it's due to options paralysis, or my own lack of skill, but I can get a sound I like much quicker with a good 'ol SM57. So now I've begun the question for more variety, and have...

    Learned about from JBroll, who does not grace this forum that often anymore, but still thankfully chimes in on social media every once in a while. https://thehuxcapacitor.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/sm57-modification/ I didn't actually read how the mod works, but I assume you just throw the whole...

    I bought a Mesa Mini Rectifier slant 1x12 a while back and had a go at micing it with an SM57, but all I can get out of it is a very boxy sound, no matter where I place the mic. I'd assume it is just the nature of a 1x12, but I've seen plenty of clips of people using a similar set up and they...

    I own 3 of these, and two i5s. I'm keeping 2 and 2, so I'll pick the spiffiest/cleanest SM57 (or the one that smells the least like beer) and send it to you for $75 shipped. They're all in excellent shape, since I don't gig. Or really record. Mostly I just use them for doing King Diamond Karaoke...

    The profile is really accurate, probably my most accurate one so far. I reamped a small part in the video with the kemper profile, can you hear the difference?

    So, now that I have these two mics here, how are you guys that do this normally positioning them in relation to each other? Both mics in the same basic spot and blend together, or do you feel out two completely different positions for each mic by ear?
  10. Music: Recording Studio
    Anyone own/recorded with both and have any input as to the difference? I'm looking into picking up a couple more mics, and I can't really justify a 421 right now. But for ~$150 the 57 Beta is something that I don't already have. I'm just not sure if it'd be all that different than using just a...

    Which one do you prefer? Any other PR30 users here, or other Heil mics? I bought the PR30 based on looking around on forums, etc... I'm curious how it's compared to other Heil mics.

    Hello all metal guitarists :) I am looking for some expertise and help regarding amps. Long post I know, but please be patient. [note: following section is classified with a newbie warning] xP I am recording a lot of original music in my room, plugging my guitar into an audio interface through...

    Surprisingly, the Palmer really doesn't sound all that different. I'm pretty sure Palmer was shooting for a Celestion V30-ish speaker with the "normal" setting.

    I'm going to try some micin' of my cab this weekend, and have been poking around reading up on people who have mixed results (some great, some terrible) mixing an SM57 off-center/bottom-left (the usual) on a 4x12, and running a condenser centered in front of it. Any of you try this? If so...

    Battle of the cheap, awesome mics! There are a few comparisons out there like this one, and ever since I borrowed Drew's for like, two years, I'd been meaning to pick up another i5. Right now I have a few 57s, and they're reliable and can take a beating, but now that it's in my head, I do...

    I bought this SM57 less than a year ago. Other than a ding on the tip it is in excellent condition. Other than that it is 100% functional. It comes with the original manual as well as a case, clip, and velcro cable tie. $50 shipped. M-Audio Fast Track MKII Also less than a year old. It is...

    Just got my Audix i5 mic in the mail today to try out with my new Grendel Dead Room iso cab, which has a V30 speaker. I should publicly thank xtrustisyoursx from ss.org, who suggested I try the i5. Holy crap, the improvement is huge. It's like removing a blanket off the sound. Both more...
