All sound samples were recorded direct with no additional signal processing. A single microphone right up front on an open back 2 x 12 cabinet (loaded with Eminence speakers) and an additional microphone placed about 20 feet away were used to capture the tones of the amp. Guitars used were a 1954 Reissue Thin Skin Fender Stratocaster with vintage 50's pickups and a 2009 Charvel San Dimas with a Duncan JB. No effects were used (except on the last sample.)
