Mike’s Notes – Video Blog – Answering email about getting amp sounds while recording.

Hey Guys,

I’ve been getting some email asking questions about different things I do/use when performing and recording. One particular reoccuring question has been about what kind of advice I would give about dialing in an amp to get great tone.

Well, it just so happens that my good friends at Orange Amplification had lent me an OR15 head for some recording I was working on while finishing up the Agent Cooper album. It’s an amazing amp! And also a very straight-forward single channel, no B.S. EL84 tube monster weighing in at a mighty 15 watts. Which makes it perfect for recording with and demonstrating how I like to work with gain structure to acheive different tones.

This video is the result. The amp was recorded into a Pro Tools session through a Glenwood 2×12 cabinet loaded with Celestion Vintage 30’s and no effects or EQ added in post. Bone dry. So you get exactly the sound I’m hearing in my studio (depending on what you are lstening to the video on, of course!)

Keep sending in your e-mails and I look forward to answering more of them in another video blog.

(Spoiler Alert: you may hear an excerpt of new Agent Cooper music as well as something that might be on my next solo album. Both coming soon!)
