Random video but a cool concept of "cabinet mic'ing&quo

    So I was watching this video about the band Darkest Hour. They've been recording in Canada with Devin Townsend.

    There's a bit in the vid midway through when they're tracking guitars where they show off this box, it's a quiet box, for recording guitars.

    Any idea of the microphone inside? It looks kind of like a 57 with a windscreen on it on a weird looking mic stand.

    Anyway what are your thoughts on this box?

    That didn't look like a 57 to me, but it was hard to see. The box is cool though I used a very simular set up in my home studio for years. I used an old deep freeze as it was already pretty air tight I got rid of the coolant and lined it with ridgid fiberglass and sound foam. It cut the noise down by about 30dB. Worked pretty well on small amps not so great on stacks. The good old days ;->

    Yep-the tricky part is getting rid of the refrigerant in a safe way. When I did I just bend the pipe to seal them off both end of the chamber and cut it out. Not something you want F@#$$ up though, danger danger....
    My buddy wanted the gas so that was that. Cheap iso box.
