The one in the Fractal is super awesome, it's straight out of 1987. I'll grab a pic when not on my phone but its called the RTA block. You can customize the bands and whatnot too. It's the best thing ever.You need a spectrum analyzer for the top of that rack. All the good ones are discontinued though.
I have one somewhere actually. I own a bunch of mics from various phases of wanting to mic up cabs. At the end of the day for what I do it's just easier to use the Kemper, because it sounds just as good anyway. My 4x12 is at least 10 years old, probably more, and I wasn't the first owner. It's a decent sounding V30 cab but nothing special and more than a little long in the tooth.BTW, since you mentioned occasionally micing the cabs you should pick up a Sennheiser side address e906 or e609 for your closet thing. Those are super fucking convenient if you want to mic a cab occasionally but don't want to position a stand every time. You just flick whatever the mic is plugged into on when you want it and go. No positioning stands.
Does he store them like wines in a hardwood maturation cabinet?The only cab I'd consider micing up is that C90 1x12 and I already made an impulse of it so there's really no need. Plus I can't really afford to go down the mic rabbit hole the way Drew did, he has like 10 large in mic pres now. It's a slippery, expensive slope. :lol:
Really? Any time I record something I think there might be a remote possibility of keeping I throw fresh strings on. The difference is night and day.I used to change my bass strings a lot. Not anymore and I cannot really tell the difference.
Make sure to check your policy. Most homeowners policies only cover something like $500 or $1000 per item up to a maximum amount of $3000 or $5000. If you haven't already, you may want to talk with your insurance company about scheduling some of these higher-end guitars and amps.I threw this together for my homeowner's insurance
