Hope you dig the final draft even more. Which leads me to this: I'm not
really putting any thought into my guitar tone right now since this is
all rough draft stuff. All I've got is a Sure SM57 right up against the
grill of my Peavy Triple XXX half stack (running 6L6GC JJs). My mic
preamp is a presonus TubePre, and I've got a Comp16 for compression, but
I haven't really tweaked the settings so I doubt it's adding any useful
color to the tone.
When all is said and done, I plan to have both the sm57 on the grill
*and* an MXL990 condenser a few feet away in the air, running into a
small solid state mixer, maybe through a compressor. That second mic
makes a *world* of difference in your tone. Seriously --- it sounds
like a whole new amp.
