I posted this on the Showcase thread, but Toby said I should put it here, too, so...

HERE is a link to the East Coast Entertainment webpage that features my band. There are a few little snippets of some cover tunes on there, which sound pretty good through my headphones, but cruddy on my computer speakers. These tunes were recorded live, but with no audience. We went to the Peachtree Tavern on a Sunday and set up everything and just took a stereo recording off the board. They were mixed by Skip Slaughter, who is an amazing engineer and fellow Alembican, so he did the bass right :-) He said he ran it flat except for a little bump in the upper mids.

I'm using the D-fly and an F-2B in stereo, then combined into a DI. I'm running the neck filter rolled back to somewhere between 800-1kHz with just a touch of the CVQ, and the bridge filter all the way open. Each channel of the F2B is pretty flat, with a little bass and mid cut on the neck, a little bass boost on the bridge, and treble is boosted slightly on both. I adjust tone mainly by varying the volumes of each pickup, and with my right hand. You can hear the switch from fingers to pick on "Alabama."

Hope this is at least somewhat educational. Enjoy!

Oh, yeah, I'm using nickel DR strings...either Lo-Riders or Sunbeams...can't remember which.

I'm diggin' it Charles. I'm working on my summer school curriculum with the media player scrolling through those songs.

Good work boss.

Hey crgaston, do me a favor tell Skip that Steve Bledsoe said hello. Haven't seen him in a while. We use to live in the same town south of Atlanta. I recorded several times in his studio at his house and some down in Macon at the old Cappricorn studio. Where is he located now?
