    121 wins for me! much smoother
    the 101 sounds like an old school guitar sound lol

    p.s. didn't notice is a relly old thread!
    btw always nice to listen to some guitar tone with different mics

    Both nice, (as I already know having used a 121 over the years..) but something about that 101 is really cool... Kinda unique

    Kind of off topic, but do you guys think the t.bone RB 100 is anywhere near this kind of tone, or is just a complete waste of money?

    Ha, funny to see my old thread bumped after so long.

    In the years since, I bought an R-121, but to be honest, I don't even use it. I just use an SM57 these days when I need to record guitars.

    Thanks. I would guess it was the Lexicon Random Hall (software), but it's possible I had switched to ValhallaRoom by the time I made this thread

    I have it and it's nowhere near.
    Not a waste of money but sounds different

    Damn, I'd be afraid to manipulate an R101/121!!!
    I tried the RB500 on distorted guitars and it worked pretty well but in addition to a 57 i.e. I have a pair of Fathead with Lundhal transfo and this guys are great! I imagine they're not comparable to an R121 but still sound very very good yet affordable.

    I much prefer the 121 sounds so much better. More balanced better mids and highs (y)
