So im set on buying an isp decimator for my 333xl and a shure sm57 to record stuff at home.
Neither is more important then the other, i just cant buy both now. I have to get one in a couple of weeks an the next a month after.
The idea is simple, you guys choose which one i buy in 2 weeks, an which has to wait cause i want em both real bad. Ill give the poll a fair few hours an check later tonight.
Cheers guys

EDIT: am leaving poll on throughout night due to time differences. Im in UK

If you sold the 333, and saved the money for the isp. You might be able to afford a good used amp thats not noisy.

would you want to record with feedback coming from your amp? i say Decimator, unless ofcourse the feedback isnt THAT bad.

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

well if its not that bad, and you just wana record, are you going to be recording in a mix (sa in with a band or backing tracks) or just recording your guitar by itself will determine how important the Decimator will be. in a band setting or in a mix, the little feedback shouldnt be a problem

You can always edit guitar tracks to eliminate the feedback, However recording with a mic is much better imo than direct.

Get the Mic

Idk much about that amp, I played one back in the "explosion" days, and yes it did explode right in the guitar shop after 10 min of playing.


However I did have a 6505+ and wow noisiet amp ever. I couldnt even use my tube screamer. It was rediculous...

I just decided instead of spending $400 on a pro rack, and messing around with pedals to get a better sound to sell the thing.

And Id still like to have one just to mess around with. I dont regret selling it.

Is the 333 about as noisy as a 6505?? If so....DAMN

Just my guitar at home as i prefer to record band work at studio an pay for them to get all correct mic placements ect, i dont trust myself to do as good of job. A little feedback is no problem except during staccato rythym pieces, its very quite but i feel silence would make it stand out more and give it the impact im after. Oh an i want something that doesnt fluctuate in volume when im recording solos (mobiles are useless lol)

P.S i am not using the decimator to compensate for poor palm muting technique as it appears above,

why not just use a supressor from your DAW or some kind of plug in?


Dont get me wrong its a great pedal but if it were me id buy the mic first.

IIRC, the 333XL has a built in noise gate, so the SM57 will let you get in some recording.

I demand a third option.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Your 100% correct, however it is more of a filter then a gate

we choose?

sweet.

fire insurance or a fire extinguisher.

EDIT: seriously, though, i'd probably get the decimator. But I don't care too much about recording. However, my rationale would be that if you're getting a lot of noise it's not going to sound too great recorded anyway.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

True lol.
Oh with the mic do i record with it attached to a computer, and does it need any extra cables/addapters to do this which are not supplied?
Apologies for noobness

I think you'll need the version with an XLR to USB cable supplied with it. If you get that one you can just run straight into your PC with that cable. You may want a clip to attach the mic to the speaker cabinet though.

Then, with minimal recording and equalisation skills, you can remove the hum from the recording with your computer.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.
