Just had my face lifted clean off by the tone I got with the blend of these two mics.



Ribbons tend to be a little dark in the top end (or rolled off, more like) but this one extends a little higher than most. It's still not enough for it to do well on its own, so the 57 comes to the rescue there where you'd expect, with that big ol' upper mid/treble spike. The ribbon fills in the low mids and low end in general quite nicely, though I did have to EQ out some boxiness around 250hz, and again around 720hz.

This is a 50/50 blend so no mic is dominating here, both at the same volume, both aligned for phase about 1inch off the cloth of my 1960AV (v30 + t75, but only the v30 was mic'd here).

I did NOT listen last night. Are you guys reacting to the tone, riffing, or both? :lol:

I'm reacting to the tone. Riffing was cool too tho.

Thanks gentlemen. I think I'll be using this mic combo a lot from here on out!

This was with the Engl Savage btw... Interested to see how the Rectifier behaves with this combo, because a single 57 + rectifier is my favourite recorded tone so far, so with the added magic of that ribbon I bet it's gnarly as tits.

Hehe thanks man, Rockas already contacted me but all my amps were being serviced at the time, and now I've got them back he's already found a tone he likes, but I'm happy to give it a whirl if you like this tone Rockas. I'll shoot you another PM later...

This is, as usual, fucking awesome. For fuck's sake man release something with your asskicking riffery on it that I can spend my Freedom Credits on.

Well, shit. That's what Dime's tone SHOULD have been.
