As I stated on the Ischell Mic thread: "After moving my Ischell mic into several different places to try it, and NOT re-doing the putty 'donut', the mic gradually ended up too close to the top (or maybe right next to it), from repeatedly pushing it against the bass. The tone had gradually deteriorated to being too 'bassy' without enough clarity, such that I stopped using it for awhile. I think it was just looking at the uneven squished up putty that got me to thinking about re-rolling the 'donut'. Then I remembered that I had some putty-setters so I took one out. After redoing the putty and verifying the height off the table with the 'putty setter' I am getting a better sound than ever. It is truly microphonic (as it should be). The highs and the clarity are back - even though I reset the EQ to 'Flat' from the default low roll-off. I kept wondering why my piezzo 'quack' had disappered - I no longer needed to use the mid-cut. Then I realized 'DUH', I'm not using a piezzo, I'm using a mic. Can't wait to get back to the gig and put it to the acid test. I'll be really surprised if I'm not happy with the results - and I'll be honest enough to report it one way or the other here." So here is the clip. Straight from my Shen Gemunder to my Genz Benz 3.0 head (no pre-amp or any other 'processing') then straight to my GK 112 neo cab. The Zoom H4 was about a foot in front of the cab. I honestly don't think I ever gotten a sound that is more MBOL and it is so bloody simple. 1 mic, 1 head, 1 cab, 2 cables - that's it. Simple and cheap.
