My band began recording our first proper LP last week. We tracked drums in three days and then I began my guitar parts (I play 75 percent rhythm guitar)
I used my z28 for my main tone and my MAZ 18 for accent parts (super chimey parts). Wow. The results blew me away. The z28 was amazing. I had volume and treble dimed and bass rolled back a bit. Played a jazzmaster with an antiquity II neck pup for all of it.
Mics chosen were a royer r-121 and an earthworks condenser. They ran through two bae 1066d's (neve 1073 clones).

Keep us posted with links to samples once it's all done, k?
How great it would be, in addition to all of the wonderful things you're already known for, to have a reputation as a good person. But how overshadowing of all your talents will a bad reputation be! Therefore, choose your words wisely and seek to be kind.
I'll definitely post it up when it's all done. Maybe even some guitar-only clips.
The engineer wanted the purest signal path from guitar to recording so I didn't use any distortion/boost. The guitar did run through a van amps spring reverb unit on the way into the amp which was really cool.
The sound is true to life (due to the top of the line outboard gear) - very rich, dynamic and clear in the mix. The on-the-verge-of breakup tone that we all love about this amp is what I used as my clean tone so far and it really sounds beautiful.
"Z" Steve: Great amps Frank those Hi Walts!

roscoenyc: Whenever I see the phrase "clean pedal platform" I'm filled with sadness about the real tube amp joy that could have been.
