Cab and Mics

The cab used is a Zilla® Fatboy (2*12) rear-loaded with two Hesu® Demon, 8 ohms, wired in parallel. This collection contains captures of both speakers (the “new” one and the “old” one) : these are similar 8 ohms speakers but they provide two different and complementary flavors of the Demon tone. The “left” speaker (-L in the filenames) has both more bass and more bite and provides the most scooped tone of the two. The “right” one (-R) is more even, less scooped with less bass extension. It can give a “boxy” or tighter feeling on some of the captures (the “-EQ” ones, mostly). The Demon is made for rock and metal and these captures will work nicely with downtuned guitars. For standard tuning or drop-D you may have to slightly beef-up the low end (100-350 Hz), especially with dry pickups (say EMG 81) or amps.

The Zilla® Fatboy 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.
