Four bars are played three times: Clean, dirty, and cranked. The 1st two bars are the bridge pickup, the 3rd bar is both pickups, and the 4th bar is the neck pickup. Each bar is 1:14.
A Gibson SG plays into a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe Limited Edition. The Normal channel was used. The amp is stock. 12″ Jensen P12N Alinico speaker, 40 watts, 50lbs (actual weight). This recording was made with a Shure 57 placed against the amp cloth, about 1-2 inches off-center of the speaker. An Apogee Duet A-D converter was used into Garage Band. A Boss Loop Station captured the guitar performance to insure the exact same performance was used in every amp, every instance.
The guitar performance is meant to be simple, loose, and low-key, using varying positions to reveal the amp sound. Please don’t waste our time with any criticism of the guitar playing. It’s pointless. This could have been done a million different ways. It is meant to be a comprehensive and informative (mostly vintage Fender) tube amp comparison and is something that was not previously available like this. Thanks.
