#69: Dynamics on Distorted Lead

Distorted guitar is always tricky capture. Here we are using a stock Gibson ES137 for the full fat sound. The 8 dynamic mics in a price range from $99 to $400. There are old favorites and new up and coming mics looking to topple the old king. Bryan Knisley, of North Orbit Audio, solos over an Alt Country song using the Way Huge Havalena and MXR Carbon Copy and we also have the Blues Jr going through a Tone King Ironman.
