1) What is your current signal path live?
2) Are you a player who sticks his tried and true setup or more of an experimentalist in the studio?
3) Do you have any production strategies yourself or do you leave it to the producer to capture a good sound?
Trust your ears.
In life and music, what is is but that doesn't always mean it's what it should. Change, is in our hands.
