I apologize in advance if I've posted this in teh wrong forum. I'm sure the moderators will correct me. Anyway... I plan on recording in a few months and I use a lot of distortion in a few of my bands songs. What is the best way to go about doing this? I searched the forums and couldn't find the answer I was looking for. This is my gear and situation: I use a Stingray and my amplification is an SWR intellar Overdrive pre-amp and powered by an Ampeg SVT Classic. I run all that through an Ampeg 810E. I WANT to retain the beefy distorted tone that I get out this set-up. Past attempts at recording have sounded like watered down, high pitched annoying fuzz. Another problem is my use of chords w/distortion. Is there any way to record distorted bass chords without having them come out like poo? Where is the best place to place the mic? It seems that plaing it right up on the speaker makes it sound like rotten ass, i.e. that high-pitched fuzzy sound I mentioned. Can anyone recommend any kick ass distored bass songs/tracks I could check out for reference? Thanks for your help!
