Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers


Ok......all sorted now. I tried a 11r and was unfortunately unimpressed. I don't want to offend the 11r users but i found it to be just as i was 10 years ago with my guitar port. Thin and weak with nothing to make me wanna play.

I realize that these things need to be tweeked but i feel that time tweeking is time better spent playing. Sorry if that offends the 11r users.

Anyway.....im sitting here now with my order just arrived. Two mackie mr5's, apogee duet 2, duet 2 breakout box and a shure sm57

I also play a orange th30 so will be buying that on friday when i get moneys.

I would still like to thank the 11r users for their input and advise

Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers


just to add: the DI on the 6505+ 112 combo is amazing. i normally hate Di's, but this one sounds like an on axis Sm57 right off the dust cap. the best way to describe it is steel panther's feel the steel album.

just another option

As a 11 rack user, I still appreciated playing through a real tube amp. An Orange amp is a great choice. I would suggest trying the AD30HTC. There is no FX loop on the AD30HTC but I like the dirty channel more as it is a tube rectifier. There is also a mid control where the TH30 only have the Treble and Bass. Also, the AD30HTC is made in UK while the TH30 is made in China.

Either way, you can go wrong with Orange.

Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers


I did actually look at the AD's but because of the extra cost i would have to sell one of my mesa heads so gonna hold out and see what the next few months with the th30 are like and then perhaps drop the single rec for the AD.

I have just taken on extra weekday gigs with a young girl singer so will prob use the th30 for those to road test it. It won't replace the f-50 in my band though because i need the clean headroom for roy orbison, beatles......and that sort of stuff.

Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers


The only reason I didn't buy the AD30 is because of the FX loop. I still needs to use my delay and reverb. I'm assuming the Orange is cheaper there in the UK and the Mesa is over price, while it is the opposite here in the US. I bought a Dual Rect. instead of the AD30 and because I already have a Tiny Terror.

Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers


Yeah oranges, laneys and maybe marshall are a bit cheaper over here and mesa has just got so expensive its stupid. Just as an example, in about 2007 a got my express 5:50 and it was 1250. Now they are about 1600. Its painful buying American amps over here now which is a shame because you build some decent gear over there

Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers


It is now cheaper to buy American made amps (Mesa, Carvin) and guitars for as imports.
