So ive changed the tone one more time

What do you guys think?

i want some feedback. My tone used to be a lot heavier, but I went for something lighter and smoother this time

Its a live recorder with the built in mics of the boss br600, but much of the character of it can be heard

The guitar could have been louder, but I think it sounds fairly good.

I would personally throw in some more mids, but I'm a mids *****

Yeah not bad what kind of amp are you using? The guitar needs to come forward in the mix a touch


Bugera 333xl. I need to get a new cab though. im using stock b52 speakers
Tried it in a marshall cab and have been anxious to get a new cab since

Cool i'm a bit of a fan of the 333XL sounds like it'd be good for RHCP kinda stuff

i can barely hear the guitar. is in nice to judge with the parity of a mix, but not when you are competing against the symbols.

could be good tone...

Well where's everything else at?

My ears might just be over compensating, they always do.

Seriously, I love mids like I love my dog. They add a lot of life to the tone in a rig.

The treble is at about 1am, and the bass at 12 am.

I left it nearly flat. I used to have a scooped sound, and then a tone with like twice as much gain and the mids like at 3 oclock hehe. I had second guitarist then,however but ill try raising the mids tomorrow a bit. I can rerecord the guitar a bit louder.

All feedback is welcome, and thanks to all who have given their feedback

sounds like you really want some help. but i am serious about the mix, if they recording doesn't really reflect how your tone sits in the mix, then it is hard to critic.

for example, the earlier part of the song, you have some distortion on; you do some leads with a few chords, but all you can really 'hear' the tonality of is the leads, the chords just run together. i don't know if this is because the drums are cutting into that frequency and dominating the guitars too much in the mix, or if guitar tone is running getting to 'busy' with more complex chord shapes.

most of the recording sounded 'tinny' as well, i don't know if that is speaker selection, EQ, or mic placement.

if you really want a honest idea of the quality you need for advice then check something like 'maggot brains' or 'black napkins' on my profile. those clips you can actually hear how the guitar sits in the mix.

Its a rehearsal recording, recorded with the built in speakers of the BR600. The recordings tend to come out darker than the actual tone, but I will record the guitar louder tomorrow. I wish I had the equipment to mic the drums and the guitar cab into tracks. It would show the sound much better.

Im very happy with the sound I have now, but I always look for ways to improve it.

I think the bass frequencies are too high, and what's the panning effect going on? Of course it would sound much better in real life or mic'd with a good instrument mic but it sounds to me like you need to roll back the bass and up the mids slightly. What are your settings?

Is the bass too much on the clean or distortion...
or both


My settings are (based on oClock)
Treble at 1
Mids at 2
Bass at 1.5

Presence at 2

I am using b52 speakers in a b52 cab by the way

I didn't listen to the cleans lol but I know they are good. I would try 2.5/2/12 for the EQ and then adjust the prescence for the mid high fine tuning. A better cab would definitely help

Besides the weird phasing going on, I really like that distorted tone. Didn't know the 333 could sound like that. If you double tracked that, it'd sound killer.


Its extremely versatile, I am gonna try what AxSilentxLine suggested. Hopefully it will sound even better. It has so much gain it is insane, this is pretty low compared to my old tone.

It isn't? I just skimmed through the rules and didn't see anything regarding this type of thread. I mean, I know there's already a tone testing thread, and these kind of threads are generally looked down upon, but don't just make up rules.

It could just be mic placement, but it sounds like you need a little more presence/treble
