Wouldn't really know, but I'll guess at the Herbert being the lead???

Very nice. Sounds a bit like a "Heart" mix with the lead and rhythm. Were you going through the board, or miking directly?

used a stereo palmer DI box ..I find miking for live has too much ''bleed over'' between the mics, the palmer does a reasonable job ..

and sometimes I like to be able to post process an individual track a little..

ok so now I have bought an einstein and I am keeping the herbert for comparison, selling the ceriatone, the cleans are lovely and the high gain violin thing is also great, but the herbert does them too (with some tweaking) and also everything in between..

sigh then i have to decide beween the diezels and but the next cornford MK50 mk2 that comes along....


so my next goal is to have a diezel and a cornford for my mix..

just to update...

the herbert is going, never use channel 3 or the mid cut, and 160w is crazy for the space i have, also fed up of waiting for a cornford mk50 mk2, so just got an elmwood modena 60, to compliment the einstein, also i found a 1973 hiwatt custom-100 in a boot sale for 40 euros,!! and i am getting that serviced and repaired (250 euros) so will have that to try in a few weeks :o :o

heres a little vid called building a bridge herbert backing and einstein lead

update, found a cornford mk50 2 eventually so that will be arriving next week then its either the einstein or the elmwood to go, tricky decision as i like both, but probably the elmwood at the moment, but i need to test all 3 thoroughly

hiwatt was a one trick pony, very very loud and not my kind of thing, the cornfords are high end hand built, i have had a couple but waited for ages for this particular one, will report when it arrives and is tested properly
