AEA engineer Julian David produced and recorded the German band aVid* at their own studio Schau & Horch, and the band has been so kind to provide a couple of guitar tracks of this session. Guitarist Stephan Marten played a Telecaster guitar through a vintage Fender Twin Reverb amp courtesy of Thomas Hannes. AEA would also like to thank Digital Audio Service in Hamburg, Germany for kindly providing the BAE 1028 preamp.

Several different guitar tracks were recorded for the song "Deep Breath", which can be heard in this list of sound samples. The first set of samples is a clean funky guitar lick, the second one an overdriven rhythm guitar. The Fender combo amp was recorded with an AEA R92 ribbon microphone and a Shure SM57 at the same time. The R92 was positioned about 1-2 inches away from the grill of the amp, while the SM57 was a little further back to line up its capsule to the ribbon of the R92. It is important to pay attention to the phase relationship between the two microphone to avoid comb filtering when blending them together. Find out more about this topic at
