Gibson 496R
I mounted the microphone on my Squier Jagmaster (Vista Series Fender Japan and Korea not a gutter!) And I really found what I was looking for: power and a particular grain slightly vintage!

the output level is high which allows the nuances of playing in his clear, to go from clean to crunch very nice oldie.

As soon as one engages the saturation JODER cons: it's a killer! I for one am a fan of Kyuss and for that big fat well it's ideal!

It says you have to like the Gibson sound, but the advantage is that to get an idea is no need to run through France, there are equipped with guitars.

The problem: it is a bit expensive. But good to okaz it must be I think. Anyway, I could not do without now that I have!

Trs good microphone.
Trs hot, with a clear coated but Slamming bass.
He knows most, much like an SH-1, collect all of nivraux saturated with its magnet alnico V.
Some samples:

In clean:

Trs in saturated:

Therefore set apart from the fact that I have a hard race on a Gibson, the mic well Ragit trs

a month on my Ibanez ...

good killing this microphone! the sound is fat and round on the low strings and hairline and always warm on the high strings!

I really like the result for rock, blues and even metal! Meanwhile fat is added to my ibanez rather dry and cold and the result is really very nice ... <img class="smiley" src="" alt="biggrin" />
