    I can't believe nobody has asked this or then I just totally missed it, but here it goes... What is your favourite guitar amplifier that ends up on the albums most of the times?

    It has to a Peavey 5150 or a Boogie Dual Rec (though I guess Peavey was used slightly more than the Boogie), bothcombined with a Mesa cab

    What to do to avoid disgusting guitar fizz (sand). My 57 mic is placed like here:

    [​IMG]

    I use 5150 with mesa4*12: presence=12oclock, high=10oclock. Post gain=2

    57 goes to RME ff400 mic preamp. Is that sand because of:
    -cheap rme preamp
    -mic
    -amp and low volume settings.

    How to diagnose that ?

    i am listening to your mixes - they all have other highfreqs.. My head is broken

    How does it sound if you turn the post gain up to 3 to 3.5? Also is the mic on axis or off? What are your other settings on the amp?

    BFMV was Colin Richardson
    Trivium was mixed by Andy but don't think it was recorded by him unless he re-amped guitars.
    Don't know about Caliban.

    His favourite mic pre is the Crane Song Spider I think, though I'm not sure when he got it.

    i have one question that i'm sure many other will be interested in too:

    andy, you frequently say that you like to mic up cymbals in pairs, with extra mics for china hat and ride.

    i wonder how you deal with the ambience, phase, and stereo image of the rest of the kit? especially the snare?
