Dopesmoker production - mics and preamps and ?

Postby ryandfl » Mon Sep 07, 2015 11:26 pm

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'm wondering if anyone has information around the studio work for Dopesmoker.

What mics did they used? Preamps? Compressors? Other tools? How much were room mics playing a part?

It's such an influential guitar tone for me. I want to know about the whole package.

Weed played a very influential role in that guitar tone.

There are a bunch of guitar tracks on that album.

Why not get in touch with Billy Anderson?

^From that link
That was a long time ago, but..its still really clear in my
mind what was used because that album was such a struggle and
achievement...Anyhow, for basic tracking (I'm pretty sure this
track was used throughout the mixing process as a center track,
except for the "scratch" solos..) we used a Green Matamp with a
Green 4x12 cab, mic'd with an Sm57 and a Beyer M88. For the
main guitars, we used two full stacks, one stack driven by a
Green Matamp and the other driven by a Green Matamp Combo amp
(I think it had 2x12" speakers) on the front end and a Slave
Unit power amp on the back end...Each stack was mic'd close
with SM7 and M88 with a room mic (probably a large diaphragm
Neumann U67) and all mics summed to one track on tape. This
setup was used to double the main guitar. So at that point we
had the original live track and two performances of the setup
with 2 stacks, equalling three tracks total.
THEN--on certain parts of the song, for texture and dimension,
we did an additional rhythm track using a fucking Pignose amp,
open halfway with an AKG 414 in figure 8 pattern inserted into
the open amp...Fucked up, right?
After that, solos were done with the 2-full stack setup or the
Pignose depending on which solo...Clean guitars were done with
the Matamp combo at low volume with a ribbon mic close up and a
room mic...
Does this help you? Thanks for the compliments. One day I/we will write a book
about that recording---it's an amazing story!!!
Be well, riff on..

Awesome. Thank you very much.

I think I might try out an M88.

He used a Pignose backstage mic'd up before he got to his current hidden Blackstar/Pharaoh combo didn't he?

PS: Christ he sounds good live with HOF right now. So fucking chestpoundingly mighty but so much clarity

I spoke with him once when he was in my shop, he was looking for a Pignose because they keep a bunch of them behind his stacks at shows and mic them up and switch his signal through them for solos like on the album.

I thought that was a joke at first.

So he's still using the HT20/Pharaoh to add to the SLOs, but hiding it? Pretty rad. I like my little Blackstar.
