I'm not much of a middle position guy myself, but you're getting a nice tone there with that mini. I prefer your full size hums in the neck.

Man, that Deluxe Reverb and JBL's sound sooo good. The bridge PAF is stellar! Ridiculously good!

Love all your clips, keep them coming.

Thanks dre,
I rarely use the middle position unless wired out of phase (oop).
When I mounted the PAF I forgott to check that it was oop with the mini...

Anyway, I got the idea to record a "middle position in phase" versus "middle position out of phase" clip.

Normally I use this PAF in neck position (it's 7.4k), just wanted to try it in the bridge.
Have to admit I like it there... :D

The middle position, with the guitar's vol/tone knobs set correctly, can sound amazing.

Don't get me wrong, I really like the middle pos when others are using it. I just don't jive with it when I'm playing.

Zoork,
Is your vol. and tone (guitar) on 10 in these clips? Also, How do you record /mic your amp.

thanks,
dre

Who knows, maybe I'll learn to embrace the middle position... :eek:

In this clip vol and tone was on 10. Amp settings was 8 (vol), 8 (treble), 0 (bass) and 3 (reverb).

I like to experiment when recording. In this case I used a Sennheiser MD 421U (quite close to the cab) and an Olympus ME4 (a bit distant to the cab). The Olympus is an old and tiny electret condenser microphone w/tie clip...

.... microphones --> Behringer MX1604A --> FOSTEX MR-8HD.

So maybe it's time to give the "normal" middle position a chance...

I'm about to record a "middle position in phase" versus "middle position out of phase" clip.
Let's see if that will give me a reason to re-calibrate my preferences... :yesway:

Sounds great :thumb:
Yeah that Mini cuts through in a very nice way. No wonder they are a popular choice as neck humbucker in Telecasters too.
The bridge pickup sounds great too - a very big sound.
Liked the middle a little less - could be the balance just not to my taste.

But great tone and playing :)

Thanks Johnny,
when I'm done with the "out of phase" VS "normal" middle position comparison,
I'm thinking of setting up my gear for a drop-d session.
Just curious about what low DCr PAF's can deliver in a heavy metal context... :hmm:

Sounds like number 2 is the OOP, I'd say (crappy laptop speakers notwithstanding).
