Right, so I'm going to a studio to jam in the next couple weeks, just checked out the amps they got:

V- Marshall Super Bass 100 & Fender Bassman cab
T- Fender Rumble 100
T- H&H v-s bassamp
T- Behringer BX600

Just wondering which one was the best, and whether any of them were good for treble or distortion

that Behringer deserves to be your next fail of the day.

All that theory my guitar teacher tries to drill into my head just gets buried under piles of porn and I never manage to apply any of it

Lol, not what I'm gonna get, just what they have, I just need to figure out which one to use

Ive played a lower-level Rumble, and altho I have very little experiance, i kinda liked it. Behringers have a very bad rep, dont touch it.

it depends on sound. I find marshall are good modern sound, and fender is just a standard bass amp.
i don't know h&h,
but behringer bass amps arent good.
When my band recorded our producer took the piss out of them the whole time, and said he was getting pros in with behringer equipment and it always recorded sh!t.

try this... biamp, with no effects going to the Marshall, give it plenty of lows and not so much on the highs, and add a few effects on the other line, going into the Fender.

Forget amps, mic'ing up an amp will take forever, and then you need to find the best tone with it. This takes time and time = money!

When I have recorded, I go straight into a good studio preamp (focusrite or similar). Then you can alter your tone on there, gives a much cleaner sound. You can then change it further on ProTools if you want.

The main problem with that is, then the band cant here him? A lot of professional players take a DI signal from the amp and mic it up, so they can get a clean and a warmer tone, which can be mixed together.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

The best way i've found to recording is to set up the whole band, the guitars DI'd into the mixer and played back through the headphones, these are recorded but only as a rough recording. Everyone can hear each other as they all have headphones.

The drummer is mic'd up and recorded at the same time. Your drum tracks are done.

Then, one guitar at a time, starting with bass, overdubs the drum track with the rough track playing through the headphones.

You can do this in the live room with the amp mic'd and DI'd but this takes time to get the best sound.

But you can just sit in the control room and plug into a preamp, adjust the EQ a little and away you go. No expermentation needed with mic placement etc.
