I'm a big fan of speaker simulator technology. You just can't get that consistent, solid and totally controllable sound from microphones, without investing in resources that the vast majority of us would find quite impossible.
Good enough for the likes of Iron Maiden and many more, the SPL Transducer has built itself a remarkable reputation in a very short space of time.
This box sits between your amp and your 8Ω cab. Set your amp output impedance to 8Ω and you’re good to go. Delivering a consistent signal for recording and reducing the output to your cab by 50%, the Transducer allows you to record at lower sound pressure levels and gives huge flexibility over what you're recording.
The switches and dials on the front make the Transducer hugely versatile and an array of outputs on the back is just so welcome.
Built by SPL, the build quality is outstanding.
I have two of these and reluctantly need to let them go. If you’re interested in recording with valve amps, you might be interested in some vintage amps I have for sale at the moment, such as a 1971 Marshall 1959 Super Lead, a 1980 Marshall 2203 and a Marshall 1959 Randy Rhodes Signature Series re-issue.
