This one is using two amps.

Rig is…

2 x kustom kga10fx
Fender aby pedal
Superlux d112 mic

Firstly, the sound isn’t that well captured. It’s just from my phone, so it’s missing the stereo effect of the two amps used together.

On the 2 amp setup Basically 1 amp was all bass with a bit of gain and the other was mids and highs with a bit more gain.

I decided not to use the american tone pedal as it colours the sounds of the amps so much that i don’t think you get an idea as to how cool these amps are… Remember they cost about £20 each!

There is a weird inbuilt delay/reverb hybrid so I’ve got it set to about 9 o’clock on both.

I think you can hear that the depth is greater in the clip with 2 amps. I think I had about 1 cent less gain on the 2 amps together so there is a bit less breakup, but it’s just such a controllable sound with a lot less clipping. There is more of a balance between the low and high end in reality when listening to the two amps together, I think the bass was picked up more my the phone mic.

The single amp still sounds good imo, although in reality it doesn’t sound quite as good as the recording is making out, I think the recording software may have compressed the tone a little and no where near as deep or complex as the two together.
