    Sounds pretty clean, I'm not listening on my monitors though. Sounds like the tone could possibly use a touch more gain, but that's just my taste.

    Sounds proper.

    IMO less gain is always better. You can forget going for a tight low end if you crank the gain. That gain was enough IMO.

    After a 2nd listen on my monitors, it sounds like you've got a good amount of gain. I'm more concerned with 500-800hz-ish warmth, not a huge deal though.

    Not bad. Midrange seems like it needs work though, high end could be smoother too. Sounds like you need to turn the amp up higher, or if it's too high, bring it down a bit.

    thanks for the comments! the amp was quite loud, but not even closed to be cranked to be honest. i miced it fredman style, i guess this could have make the problems of the midrange maybe? is it something to fixed by eq? or maybe i have to try and mess up with mic placement more? thanks!

    Make sure the mics are in phase when you do Fredman, or any multi-mic recording for that matter. Record a few seconds of playing and then zoom in all the way and make sure that the peaks and troughs for both mics line up EXACTLY. You adjust for the time difference by moving one of the mics forward or back relative to the speaker. Once you get the mics in phase then you are ready to reamp. You can do this afterwards as well, but in my own opinion, it is better to do it before reamping.

    i actially phase shifted one and almost all the sounds got muted, only some fizz stayed. thats should be fine, no?

    i also did find out that my sound is a bit bright, maybe that cause the high end harshness,
