I’ve asked around a few places, but nobody seems to know which kind of mic Axl Rose used in the studio. Possibly even a dynamic mic. I’ve been told they drive it hot, so I tried running my TLA valve pre hot, but the Da Tube plugin just sounded better. I’ve always liked it for guitar, but for this kind of singing, I’ll never do without it now.
I bought some karaoke backing track at first just to see if I could even sing it, before wasting anyone’s time recording. The timing was variable and a bit all over the place, so Andy on drums did really well to hold that together. Really chuffed to with the result, altho I think the guitars could have done with bringing up a bit.
