Recording in drop b questions

I have found a killer tone that sounds great live while playing in drop b. But when I go to record it on my home studio equipment. It has far to much bass in it to the point where I almost wouldn't need to record the bass tracks in certain areas. So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how I could record it without loosing my tone in the process. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Berserker, I took the liberty of moving your thread to the guitar category where it'll get more lookins. The A+E category is for more "off-topic" stuff and this is a directly relevant guitar thread.

As a lownoter, I'd say that if you're happy with that tone, the onus is on the bassplayer to work with it rather than you having to modify to suit. One option is to see if a 5-string bass gets under it (I practically never use 4-strings since switching and they're now inexpensive to buy). Another is to play a highish bassline. I occasionally do this if my guitarist is playing a low riff although, if you're making a habit of it, it can get a bit wearing.

Proper guitarists will probably come in with better advice.

Im a 'proper' guitarist, but ive never gone below drop 'D' , now i feel incomplete. :lol:

I'm very bored with drop-tuned guitars.

Boy, did that sound get old very quickly.

The seven-string guitar forum could help. It's where I found this reference to recording distorted guitar that is apparently useful and funny.

Too late for me to start reading now. Any ops on the pages welcome.
