    Hi guys,

    today I had a bit time to mess around with micing my new Rackmount.
    Here 3 clips:

    JeffDI--> Maxon OD9 --> Rackmount Recti --> Engl Pro--> Sm57 --> Saffire 56

    Orange Channel, Modern style, silicon diodes mode

    Orange Channel, Modern style, silicon diodes mode

    I like the 3. one best, but there is also more possible with a bit more time...

    Sounds delicious. Is the amp a custom job, or some form of rare production model?

    These things are boss for recording and live use. One of my good friends has this and it's always a treat hearing it live. I used to play shows with one and miss it very much, thanks for the clips!

    I think I wil not play this thing on stage, just use it for studio clips. The thing is, the FX-loop have to be modded to serial...and man...when it fritz out, while fallen from the truck or something, fuck the insurance, I wont get one in this good condition, anymore.

    Live im using this Rack:

    Line6 G90
    TC. Gmajor
    Engl 530
    Engl840

    ...but I would be so nice to play this rig in stereo with the Mesa.

    I already gave you the instructions ;) It's a very simple mod. If you know which way to hold the soldering iron at least.

    Or just leave your ENGL rack home and play your Rackto mono ;)

    I got my Rev G Solo head today. It's one of the earlier Rev Gs with a serial effects loop. Sounds very nice. Here's a clip: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5150092/sparenoone_recto.mp3
