I'd really love to see this be a whole section of the equipment forum! We talk a lot about what gets us where in regards to instrument tones inspired by not only jerry but the rest of the grateful dead. Why dont we start showing em off. I got an $80 Zoom Q3 for christmas and it makes some pretty decent sound clips (has the same mics as the zoom h4, h4n, h1, q3hd etc) I'll post some clips of my jerry strat with D allen voodoo pickups soon (i was waiting to finally get some jbls)
It's so easy to make decent sound or video clips these days, and even really high quality clips are easily recorded and posted! so let's see some youtube videos, links to archive.org, quicktime sound clips, youtube videos with just picture slideshows and audio. whatever! I wanna hear these Alembic modded twin preamps, sms pre's, jbl's and jbl knockoffs, guitars, axe fx impulse files, bobby stuff, phil stuff, midi setups, strings, even picks! The full band stuff is great but really, room mics at a live show make it difficult to hear nuances. But dont tell me you cant really hear nuances with youtube compression. I bet my $80 Q3 can hear the difference between a 2mm pick and a 2mm adamas pick. well, i'll try it at least. after hearing keirweir's shakedown amps modded twin, i gotta hear more! and to get the ball rolling, i'll start posting with my limited jerry and bob licks and very under developed "dead" gear.
