I dont know whether this thread is better suited in the recording forum but it has to do with amps so here goes... Down here in the DR I've heard a lot of local rock studios complain about the size of my rig when I take them into record. They usually say that gear that big is just made for playing live, but I think you need certain size to get certain sounds. They say their recording mics can die on them or something or its harder to work with and do mastering later on etc... My rig is a mesa 400+ into a powerhouse 1000. The tone that comes out of my rig is never going to be the same than if I go straight into a tube preamp or a mixer, dont even get me started on a small solid state amp most have in house. Im not bringing in two ampeg 8 by 10s. Those of you with huge rigs do you ever have any issues translating your sound into the studio? Any comments advice would be appreciated, I got a studio gig tommorow Im laying down a track for kicks trying to get a new band of the ground.
