Day three: Tone Chasing
Today was spent entirely on the guitar sound. Me and Janne tried every possible combination of amps and cabinets before deciding on which two to go with. It looks like the main rhythm sound of the album will consist from mixing the two following signal paths:
1) guitar -> Boss SD-1 overdrive -> Marshall 1959RR -> Marshall 30th Anniversay cab
2) guitar -> a modified Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer -> Mesa/Boogie Mk III -> Marshall JCM800 cab
So basically I've been playing the same riff for about 8 hours today, listening to different amps. Not the most fun a guy can have, but hey, it's gotta be done! The tones we ended up with sound big and rockin', so it's about time to start recording geetars!
