When it comes to getting crushingly heavy guitar tones on record, Periphery’s Misha Mansoor is an expert. In fact, Periphery has made a name for themselves in the DIY and home-recording world, tracking a good portion of their albums at their home studios.
Mansoor is also a terrific friend of Sweetwater and a veteran of our annual GearFest celebrations. At GearFest 2018 this past June, he was gracious enough to host a workshop where he pulled back the curtains a bit on his recording process. From the gear he uses to what he’s learned through years of trial and error to the techniques he’s adopted, here are a selection of tips and tricks as shared by the multitalented guitarist.
