I’m trying to record with my only microphone (a Sennheiser MD-420) and my iPhone, but it doesn’t capture any of the wet amp sound out of the Super Reverb at all. I get passable though not ideal results when I use my Line-out box so at least the dry guitar sound that comes with the reverb is distorted…but I still wish I could achieve the sounds on the first Van Halen album which definitely has only reverb and no original Dry, rockabilly/funk clean guitar sound in with the reverb. Obviously I know this is because of recording the sound of the guitar track coming out of the aforementioned speakers and into the reverb chamber, but it just seems like with all this uber ridiculous technology that someone would be able to make this work.
