Right, I tried to record some clips of the Uglyface with my DI box today, only to discover that it really didnt like it and wouldn't record properly.

So I'm after a recent guitar mic that is cheaper than an SM57. Any ideas?

Fuck it, SM57 off eBay. No advice needed.

I'm going to by one of those cheap ass Mackie mixers too.

Don't. Buy a Behringer Eurorack. Better and cheaper. I have the MX602A

The only real reason I can think of getting the Behringer over the Tapco is the 3 band EQ. The Tapco only has 2 band, but it does have a instrument ins.

I'd take a nice 2 band EQ over an average 3 band EQ every time. My HiFi has a fucking wicked 2 band EQ, I love it, I wish I could have it on a guitar amp.

Why would you want less tonal options?

By that reasoning, why not get 2 31 band graphic EQs hooked up in your setup?

I would really have rather have a few basic options that sounded great in any position than an elaborate setup that had a few sweet spots.

Behringer mixers don't have "crap 3 band EQs", they have good 3 band EQs.

Also I find the ability to adjust mids generally a lot more useful than treble or bass.

I dont imagine them to be that good. I probably havent used the ones youre on about, but I have used the EQ (I think it was 4 band, might have been 3 with a sweepable mid or something like that) on a larger Eurorack thing. It was one of those older blues ones. I dont remember it being foul, but it certainly wasnt something impressive.

All I mean really, is that euan said it as though 3 band is always an advantage over 2 band. If you're doing the recording and are aware of the EQ band limitations, you can focus on the mids with mic placement and it will work out fine.

I used one of them Eurodesks for a couple of years, it's a very good desk for the money, I never had a problem with the EQ.

Does that even matter? If he got good results he got good results.

That all any of us are after. Personally I couldn't care less how it stacks up against a studio quality mixer that costs as long as it works for what I need - which it does in spades. You need to pitch your advice at solving the problem at hand with the budget available.

I wasnt trying to say "you need to buy a really really good mixer before you will get good results", I'm just saying that you need to be aware 2 band isnt always worse than 3 band.

Only one, it was something called a Raindirk Symphony, it was far and away the nicest sounding desk I've used. The studio had bought it reconditioned from the BBC, so I got to use it for a week or so...

I always do all my mixing at home now, so I use the PSP MasterQ for EQing stuff...
