here’s my old cabinet
And I installed this old guitar pickups to my first guitar
now it’s ready for shoot out. here’s the video:
now, here’s the thing. I use Boss GT 8’s preamp modeler which i shouldn’t in this shootout, but i made no equalizer setting for this, so i guess it’s fair enough because i meant to play this with my own stage setting.for the pickup, i added a magnet bar below the pickup to increase the audio signal capturing.
– about old guitar pickups. It’s the matter of technology. better pickup wiring and shielding, pole pieces positions determine the result. This old pickup has a huge microphonic feedback which is unacceptable on stages. still it has nice sound i guess. On the video I used both direct line in record to my Zoom Q3HD and using Zoom Q3HD built-in microphones. You might want to use old pickups for recording purposes to get some unique old audio signal then you can process it later on recording softwares.
– about old n rusty cabinet. well this is interesting. The speaker speaks uniquely. It maybe rusty(it has holes on its cone) but that’s what became the sound color. you can check on the video and listen the differences basically between direct recording and mic recording. noted that no matter what the amps are, the cabinet and speakers have big role in sound coloring for mic recording
well, you can consider this post is a junk and a worthless experiment, but i made it originally for the cure of my curiosity and for my guitar learning purposes. see ya later 🙂
