    During summertime I can get a very dark cool fat guitartone very easy.
    But on extra cold winterdays I get a pretty high 10khz spike when micing an cab. I have several cabs, mics and amps and they all act like this. So i actually have to lower the precense and maybe do a narrow cut at 10khz to get a usable sound. Pretty wierd.

    Anyone else experiencing this or am I crazy?

    It depends on your place....if you record in a place that has 30°C during summer and -10°C during winter...probably you can hear some variation.

    Solution: Mic your cabinets indoors.

    Unless you're doing a black metal album and literally recording it in a forest, in which case... leave the spike. It sounds kvlt.

    Around here, the changes in air humidity between summer and winter are ridiculous even if the inside temperature would remain roughly the same. Especially guitars absolutely love it, so I wouldn't be surprised if a cab would react likewise, too :)

    So during summer you get fat, smooth tones and when winter comes only cold/sterile/trve tones? Awesome :lol:
