Most people I've talked to in the recording business agree that to get those HUGE electric guitars on albums you need to mix a couple of amps. So while my friend is letting me borrow his gear for the summer I tried just that.

He has a Peavey Valveking 112 and I have my Deluxe Reverb. I ran his Les Paul into both of them at the same time, emphasizing treble on the Deluxe and bass on the Valveking. It sounds pretty damn cool!

I used an SM57 to record one and a Golden Age Project FC1 mk.ii to record the other. They're both panned center so it's like one guitar track. The rhythm electrics are panned left and right however.

What do ya guys think?
