Post Palmer PDI-03 vs SM57
For all You rippin' at home... Is it better to krank it and run through Palmer or capture it silent with a SM57 ?


Palmer set on Deep & normal - described as "british 4x12" for me it sounds more like a small cab with a Vintage 30 inside...
Marshall 1936 on G12-75t... BTW I love those...



Laney GH50L settings:

Palmer - Deep & normal - amp master volume on 7,
SM57 - Marshall 1936, Celestion G12-75T - amp master volume on 1,

Resonance On,
Presence 3.5
Bas 6.5, Mid 4, Treble 5.5,,
Gain Max, Drive 4,

I think the Palmer sounded better.

I HATE the sound of SM57s on guitar, especially for distorted lead guitar, which, in my opinion, is the hardest thing to capture well in the studio.

This being said, the Palmer sounded way better especially on the distorted parts.

I recently just bought a Royer R-121 for electric guitar. BY FAR, the BEST mic to capture perfect guitar tone, both distorted and lead. It's also really pricey but I just thought I'd throw that out there if you are heavily interested in recording.
