The sound samples you are listening to were taken with a SURE SM57 microphone about 15 cm in front of the speaker.
No EQs, compressors or any other effects were added. We did add a little room reverb to the solo tracks though.
Both channels of the amp were bridged. The whole sound sample was recorded with one and the same amp setting. The differneces in the sound you hear are caused by different guitars and playing style only.
You hear the standard JTM45 head on a 4×10″ Celestion G10H cabinet. The pictures show an 18W chassis inside of a 2×12″ Bluesbreaker combo cabinet but you will get a feeling for the dimensions of this combo.
Guitars used :
- Intro + Rhythm Track : Stratocaster
- Solo : Les Paul
Bluesbreaker combo 2×12″ builders statement
The JTM45 is a classic. Think Hendrix or AC/DC. This amp delivers very nice clean sounds and the typical crunch just with the right amount of grid to it. This amplifier can be heard on numerous legendary recordings.
Every guitarist should own one.
The 2×12″ is quite heavy and large. If you need to spare your back, I suggest a head and cabinet.
