Drop Dead Legs "apartment volume"

Post by rawel34 » Fri Jul 27, 2018 3:31 pm

Hi everybody, VH friends.
Just recorded my guitars along this 1984 song in my home-studio. I kept my Marshall's volume VERY low, looking for a decent VH guitar sound as much as possible and this is the result.
Hope you like it.

Cheers.

Hard tail Mahogany Strat with Di Marzio PAF's
Aria ach-1 analog chorus (just intro and B-section)
Marshall DSL100
THD Hot Plate (-16 dB's)
Dragoon 2x12 cab with G12H's
SM57

Now THAT was a pleasant surprise! :thumbsup:
Usually you hear someone on YouTube 'playing along with the record' and you can't hear which is which, but this was GREAT!

What did you use for the 'harmonizer'/chorus-y VH effect, rawEL34..? :scratch: :vh:

I used a light 80's old Aria ach-1 analog chorus in the intro and B-section.
Thank you, again for listened to it. :vh:
