Engineer: Dusty Wakeman
Recorded directly to 20-bit ADAT at Mad Dog Studios, Burbank, CA
a) One R-121 six inches from a guitar cabinet. Fender Stratocaster with single-coil pickups, into a Matchless amplifier with a Marshall 4-12 cabinet. At this distance you hear little or no room ambience.
b) Same Stratocaster/Matchless combination, with the R-121 three feet from the cabinet. The mic is three feet high and pointed directly at the cabinet. At this distance, the cabinet’s tone becomes more apparent and room ambience plays a more important role in the overall sound.
Multi-Instrumental Musician/Engineer/Producer Andy Georges worked at Royer Labs for years and remains a good friend of the company. He created many recordings at home and in Los Angeles studios and you’ll find much of his work in this Library.
