Here’s how the ax8 sounds through my custom made 2x12 cab with WGS Veteran 30 speakers. Mic’d with an SM57.
This is from my song “Points of View” from my album. Link in my profile if you wanna hear it.
What's your favorite method for recording bass? I personally like recording direct (double tracked obviously) and mixing in some subtle dirt and grit with a clean, sub tone. I find this method really provides a thundering, driven low end that supports the song. I've also found that generally your guitar tone is really only as good as your bass tone in the mix. Don't forget the bass! Even if it means having the guitarist track bass 😂🤣😁
