two amps face eachother when playing or recording? I have a stereo output in my last pedal, and I send it to two amps that are facing eachother at maybe a foot apart. It's really cool sounding, I can't wait to try it while recording.

Does anyone else do this...or am I just crazy?

I think you just crazy....but no I guess this would be a good idea? I'd try it, but the only pedal on my board that has a stereo out is my delay pedal which is hooked to the effects loop. And plus my only 2 amps at the moment are a Marshall and a Line6. I think the line6 might make the end result sound like poop.

Do you think it would work that way? I have a reverb and delay in my effects loop, so if I ran the stereo out to my line6, would I get just the effects loop, or the full line of effects?

Didn't Johnny Marr do something similar when he recorded How Soon Is Now? I could be wrong here.

I don't know anything about effects loops since neither of my amps has one, sorry.

I'm not sure about How Soon Is Now, I always thought he had a bunch of amps w/ tremolo pedals set to different rates...Not sure though.

I used to play a rig with the dry output in a big clean amp and the repeats of the delay in a small, cranked, dirty amp. That was fun!

From Wiki:

The vibrato sound is ****ing incredible, and it took a long time. I put down the rhythm track on an Epiphone Casino through a Fender Twin Reverb without vibrato. Then we played the track back through four old Twins, one on each side. We had to keep all the amps vibrating in time to the track and each other, so we had to keep stopping and starting the track, recording it in 10-second bursts... I wish I could remember exactly how we did the slide part -- not writing it down is one of the banes of my life! We did it in three passes through a harmonizer, set to some weird interval, like a sixth. There was a different harmonization for each pass. For the line in harmonics, I retuned the guitar so that I could play it all at the 12th fret with natural harmonics. It's doubled several times.



So you're closer than me. Anyway, my only worry with putting two amps so close would be feedback, but I can see how it'd sound pretty cool.

so, is this thread about stereo effects?
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.
