What are your favorite captures of non-high-gain amps?
My favorite is this capture of a 5E3 through a vibtage 15" Jensen miked with a Royer 121. A spectacular and highly realistic (to my ear) tone:
I feel like good DI captures are common while really well miked captures are rare. But once you find one that is done well, i am really impressed with the results. I can’t get that realism even with a real amp and an impulse response on top i think.
