Recording Guitars with Periphery’s Misha Mansoor in His Home Studio

A lot of bands record from home nowadays, but you may have found that even in this brave future wonderland where you don’t need a million dollar studio to get a solid recording (assuming you like a certain style of production), you still might be having some difficulty getting tones that rock your face off, revealing the skull and sinew beneath.

You have the same gear. Solid computer. Prosumer interface. You even shelled out a couple grand on an Axe-FX or Kemper or pricey software amp sim plugins. Well Periphery‘s Misha Mansoor has your back. He cares about you, yes you, personally.

Or hey, maybe your home tracks already sound killer but you’re just curious about the home studio setups of exciting rock n’ roll celebrities. Either way, there’s something here for everyone.

And by the way, that amp model he’s using is based off of a Friedman Brown Eye, which is a boutique amp in turn based on a modded Marshall Plexi.
