Musician Connection / Re: Being a Musician is too expensive..
« on: December 01, 2011, 01:39:35 AM »
One thing that's probably worth noting is that music stores do a hell of a lot more than just hand the goods over at a marked up price. While I agree that there is something going on that is pushing local RRP's up to borderline stupid levels, the service that many of our shops provide for us can be invaluable. I tend to buy online for certain things that are not subject to varying build quality i.e. microphones, pedals, cables, strings etc, but anything that requires a degree of human involvement in its construction I just wouldn't buy online, unless it's second hand gear but even then it's a punt.

Without knowing exactly why we pay so much more for gear over here I wouldn't have a clue how to push shops and distributers into falling into line with appropriate rates but I'm pretty sure attempting to bury them is not the answer. In fact I'd go so far as to say that the more online shops push to dominate markets, the more the local shops have to jack their prices up to stay afloat. I don't know about you but I much prefer to walk into a shop, give some gear a good test, get honest opinions from guys who know the shit and know that the guys will have my back should I need some kind of technical support or advice. That is something you just don't get from buying overseas online.

The amount of time I've spent in music shops just hanging out with the guys and playing with new gear with no intention of buying anything, almost in itself is worth the markup they put on their products.

Hey guys, don't mean to spam but I need some bands to record so I thought I'd just post my page up again for people to see, this time in the general section.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Simon-Mitchell-Recording-EngineerProducer/117085555040068

Shortly there will be a track from Prescient's forthcoming EP posted up in the music section but for now, have a listen to the Chaos track for an idea of my work (mixed by Jens Bogren but these days my mixes are closer to that quality than they are to the other 2 tracks which I did years and years ago when I was a bit of a noob, also Jens had great things to say about the quality of the recordings I sent him which is half the reason why the Chaos album sounds so good!).

Also, Psychonaut's long, long, long...long awaited album is heading into mix stage very shortly and that is going to sound fucking fantastic. I can't wait to nail that one and get it out there as it sounds really really good.

Finally, Wrath Of Fenrir's EP is making good progress and will hopefully be finished fairly soon. That one also sounds pretty bonza so I'm looking forward to getting that one on my resume too!

The above mentioned recordings are all available to listen to at my joint for prospective clients but obviously they can't be posted on the internet until they are finished and released so drop me a line if you are thinking about recording and you want to come check out more of my work.

Equipment for sale / Morley Bad Horsie 2 wah FS
« on: July 19, 2011, 03:19:47 PM »
As the title suggests.



Pretty cool wah. Obviously it's the Steve Vai signature wah and it's spring operated so you don't have to push a button to engage it, you just start wah'ing!

Has a contour button which I find gives a more aggressive sound with a larger sweep.

It has very minor cosmetic wear but is in perfect working order.

c/w Ashton power supply - $110.

Ask Ormsby / Blackstar speaker emulated outputs vs mic'd cabinet
« on: July 17, 2011, 02:45:11 AM »
So JohnnyC and I were curious about the comparison between the speaker emulated output and a mic'd up cabinet for both the HT20 head and the HT-DISTX distortion pedal. I quickly knocked up some sections from The Human Connection with programmed drums and a DI'd bass and recorded guitars using the aforementioned techniques. Johnny then put together the vid. Check it out!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7bfrywzDhg

The emulated outputs sound really good but I think there's just something lacking. They're quite clear and nice but I think personally I'd just use them as added layers under mic'd guitars just for extra thickness. They're great for demo's and assorted recordings when you can't be fucked setting up a cabinet/mics or if you have to limit noise.

Thoughts?

FWIW, Perthbands.com has been down for a few days. I can only imagine it will stay that way for a good chunk on the year, and still win a WAMi award.

Hah! Well played.

I'm pretty sure it won't be considering Van Halen could probably sell 30 000 tickets alone.

pathetic turnout.... but fuck the bands tore it up! Empires, who I had never heard, were pretty damn cool! Very tasty metal, and right up my alley.

Speaking of alleys, I just about had a prolapse when I first heard Enforce. Ive waited YEARS to see this band, and they are pretty much the exact kind of heavy I like! Very well played, obviously a tight unit and you can tell they have played together for years. Unfortunately next time you guys plays Im back in Gero on my fortnightly children visit, but every time Enforce play and Im home, Im there dude! I think I may have found my new favourite local band.... though its a toss up with....

Chaos Divine - Ive been a fan from the very start, but havent seen you guys since Slayer at the tin shed. Tight as fuck, dynamic, epic... what more could you want?
Oh, Simmo - that PRS... what an awesomely tasty sounding guitar that is! I was almost melting when you first fired that baby up.

All in all, a cool night, but I thought there would have been a few more people there, especially considering the bands on offer. Still, to all those that did go, well done for supporting the scene and the bands.

Thanks mate I appreciate it! Yeah I just bought a new amp and that was the first gig I've played with it. That guitar and that amp makes me jizz a little! I'm loving it.

Thanks to those of you who showed up and stuck around so late on a school night. Can't expect a huge turnout on a Tuesday night at a venue most people have never been to so it was good to see a few people rock up.

Equipment for sale / Re: PEAVEY JSX Joe Satriani model FOR SALE
« on: May 20, 2011, 12:19:57 PM »
Sold!

On a forum like this it would probably help if you explained how ridiculously amazing Bad Cats are. Dunno how similar in sound the Hot Cat 15 is to the 30 but if it's at all like its bigger brother then it should sell itself. Fucking incredible amps. I want one more than any other amp I've ever played.

Equipment for sale / PEAVEY JSX Joe Satriani model FOR SALE
« on: May 13, 2011, 12:04:31 PM »
Selling my 120W Peavey JSX head.



In a nutshell it's like a hotted up 3 channel 5150 markII.

FEATURES:

- 120 watts into 16, 8, or 4 ohms (switchable)
- Four 6L6s and four 12AX7s
- Power amp switchable to use EL34s or 6L6GSs
- Three footswitchable channels
- Clean channel: volume, bass, mid, treble
- Crunch channel: gain and volume, bass, mid, treble EQ and FAT switch
- Ultra channel: gain and volume, bass, mid, treble EQ and FAT switch
- Noise gate control for both distortion channels
- Master volume
- Footswitchable effects loop with send and return controls
- Resonance and Presence controls
- Line out with level control

Comes with Footswitch.

Now, it does have some minor damage to the rear of the chassis but it is in perfect working order (damage on the outside, its innards are fine).

Only selling because after 4 or 5 years of this amp and a few years of the 5150II that I had before it, I've decided it's about time for a change. In the past though, whenever I've had urges to buy new amps, those urges have been quickly quelled after cranking this beast up in the rehearsal room. It's a pretty monstrous sounding head and if you've seen Chaos Divine, you know what it's capable of!

I'm hoping for $1300 but any serious offer will be considered.

I don't come on here all that often so if interested, call me on 0431 936 079 or email me at simwk@hotmail.com

Cheers!

Thanks dawg. I'm still good for another session if you are. I know it's been a while but worth mentioning!
