Small amps 'can make big recording sound'
Musicians do not necessarily need a big amplifier to generate big sounds in the recording studio.
Jimmy Page, who used a 12-watt Valco amp on the first two Led Zeppelin albums, ranked first in the top ten, ahead of Neil Young, Jeff Beck, Steve Cropper and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons.
Explaining how these musicians were able to do so well with such relatively low-power equipment, Mr Hunter commented: "One of the best ways to get a huge-sounding guitar track is to stick a good mic in front of a small tube amp and crank the thing up."
The five-watt Fender Champ line ran for more than 40 years until it ended in 1982. It made a reappearance in 2006 as a member of the Vintage Modified range.Posted on 22 May 2009 12:03 to category : Instruments News
