    When I work with David Cleveland, he has two very different cabinets sourced by the same amp (a 1 x 12 and 2 x 10) and I put a 57 and a ribbon on each one. Last week it was a 57 and a 122 on the 12, and a 57 and a CAD 7000 on the 10s. These all four show up on the console and I mix and match between them to come up with the right sound. Lots of colors/varieties are available that way.

    All the mics are equidistant from the speakers so phase issues are not a problem with mixing/matching.

    Okay guys, thought it would be nice if I wrote back and let you know how I went. (I hate unclosed threads! )

    Quad tracking was the trick I was after!

    Here's another tip I worked out. If you can, DI the guitar too, then mix that in slightly. It gives a nice bit of definition to the distorted tones, producing a great overall sound.

    As always, remember that when tracking distorted guitars, less gain & less bass are your friends!

    You can check out a couple samples of my newly found techniques: Anything At All by Crucial Times (and the not yet uploaded to my website) When You Were Mine by Brand New Fashion. (But you can hear it here: http://www.myspace.com/brandnewfashionband )

    Cheers to all who helped!

    All the best,
    Dax.

    Should have spent your focus on drum tech questions!

    Hey Todd,

    Do you use IPB, Radial Injector or any type of reamp tool?

    yeah, I like to use that box or the Michael Wagner box to split the gtr signal to multiple heads or multiple amps. I don't do a lot of re-amping though, I try to nail it the first time around

    here's an example of an approach I think I mention earlier in this thread. This is a blend between a Vox AC-30 and a Mesa Dual Rectifier recorded simultaneously and then stacked, panned left/right. One side would favor the AC-30 with the Mesa tucked underneath and then the other side would favor the Mesa with the AC-30 tucked underneath. Mics were SM57 on the AC30 and SM7 on Mesa both thru 1073 Neve's...
