But I have another amp question.

I was recording into my Boss Micro BR the other day, through a Line6 Spider II (yeah, i know) run clean, an Ibanez SM7 for gain and my Ibanez RG370DX geetar. Now this setup sounds great at low volumes, but to record I cranked it (as you do). 2 problems occured-

1. The SM7 sounded muddy- which it NEVER does. The EQ on the amp was -
Bass- 7
Treble- 8
mid- 4

and the SM7 settings were-
Treble- 7
Bass- 3

and the tone on the geetar was full.... so was it the amo causing the muddiness, or something else?

The 2nd problem was with my wah. When I turned it on and I wasnt playing, it made this wierd high pitch noise. Kind of like feedback, but I have a noise gate on my amp and the stompbox, so I don't think that was it.

Sorry for the essay, but you see my problems. Any help is greatly appreciated and I'd be glad to take suggestions for a new amp (no doubt there will be some). Thanks a lot.

PS, if you're gonna suggest amps, my budget it about £350-ish and I play shred and metal. Preferably tube as well.

Cheers.

Sounds like either the rooms acoustics are bad or more likely the room is too small.

No, I was recording directly into the Studio.

I never said anything was wrong with spiders. Turning up a solid state amp more results in muddiness.

But if you want to get into the whats wrong with spiders thing, just search it and you'll find 100's of posts

cranking it turns into more of a mess.

+1 True story, Thats the beauty about SS amps you DONT crank them as much as tubes (unless you have those expensive low wattage tube amps and whatnot)

Is that a pedodog? it reminds me of the bear for some reason.

More mids, less bass. If you're recording with a band, your bedroom tone will most likely sound bad. You need to cut out bass and add a good bit of mids and treble (not too much or you'll bleed into the cymbals if you're with a drummer). It'll sound like you're playing in a tin can on it's own but it'll sound great in the final mix.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

If your using a Micro Br, you might need to turn the guitar effects off on the BR, turn down the input volume, and turn off any +dBs on it.
