Cab and Mics

The cab used is a Zilla® Fatboy (2*12) rear-loaded with two Celestion® G12 M Greenback (made in UK), 16 ohms, wired in parallel. This collection contains mainly the captures of one of the speakers (the “right” one) but some IRs of the second one are also provided with some of the microphones (Dyn-57). The Greenback has been declined by Celestion in multiple versions since its inception in the 60’s and the 70’s : the Greenback is that classic rock electric guitar tone with a lot of punch and very present mids. It will suit rock, blues and hard-rock players for sure, but metal guitar players and other genres should probably try them : less scooped, less open and less aggressive than more modern speakers (ie V30s), it can provide great tone, with a lot of articulation.

The cab used is a Zilla® Fatboy : it is a very good and balanced 2*12 custom cab, made to order by Zilla Cabs : check ZillaCabs website at https://www.zillacabs.com. The Fatboy is a 212 similar in size and volume to a Mesa Recto 212 or an Hesu 212.

These IRs are using ‘Gen3’ recording settings : the amp settings are updated for a darker tone and excepted for ribbon mics and unless expressly stated in the filename, HPF is disengaged at capture time to preserve the original low-end of the speaker and cab.
