Ok, so now the Pres (Hamptone, Sebatron etc...)

  1. I have a project where I am going to attempt to track both at home in my appartment and in a pro studio. The Studio is a protools room, loaded with Neve, API, Daking, UA, Vintech etc... I am looking to do Drums and final Vox there.

    At home I would like to track guitars, Bass and synths. I have bought an at4047, sm57 and I have access to an SM7. I also plan on picking up one more good dynamic mic.(EV, Beyer?) I am going to get a Demeter Iso cab in order to track amps.(maybe a Rhodes) I also plan on doing some reamping at the studio.

    I am really curious about the Hamptone Kits, especially the Jfet one. I have a guy who will build it for me cheap. Is this going to give me the colored "rock" tone I am looking for. this project is not hard rock though, more U2, coldplay, Travis, at it's hardest radiohead type tones. AC30's, a Bassmen and a Plexi clone mostly.

    How do the Hamptone pres compare to the Sebatron or Speck ones. I've also seen the UA m610 on ebay for $700 or so. this is my budget. can I get what I want from one of these?

    Thank you

    I'm a big fan of Scott Hampton's work... but I have no idea how it compares with the other stuff. Evaluating what I've heard on it's own merit I have found the Hamptone stuff to be great... as always, YMMV.
     
  3. Thanks Fletcher,

    Considering you don't sell the Hamptones and you do sell the Speck (which I am guessing is pretty cool, but not right for me), says a lot.

    It's tough at this price point

    P.S. I love the RNC, a great purchase
