Permalink Reverb on reverb

One good reason for recording a dry guitar signal is to make editing easier. If you record with a proper amount of surf reverb, you can't get rid of the 'tail' that will be present if you make a mistake.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

Don't make any mistakes! Big Grin I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist. You make a good point, but adding reverb to an already amplified signal, never sounds the same to me as, for example, driving the reverb unit directly with the guitar and pushing that signal into the amp. This is one reason I no longer use on board reverb in my Fender combo amps and have added an outboard reverb unit. I prefer the 'verb be early in the chain, additionally there's effect of 3 more stages of tube pre amp in the tank in front of the amps input. But at the end of the day, no casual listener will know the difference and if your audience likes it enough to pay for the show,CD/download, who cares! Cool

Thanks a lot guys for all the advice and stories! We discussed matters beforehand with the producer about sound and balance. We're going to record with mikes (one near the amp and another further away)and direct input simultanously.
