    ...basically a mid-gain Marshall tone through a transistor radio (does anyone remember those?). Think the intro to Gonna Know We Were Here by Jason Aldean.

    Anyone?

    I would try adding a PEQ after the amp, setting it to some form of band pass using the range listed below:

    Old analog telephone circuits using carbon microphones seem to be said to have a frequency response of, from various low frequencies which differing reports put at between 275 Hz and 400 Hz, up to various high frequencies, reportedly between 3 and 3.4 kHz, with possibly a peak a around 1 kHz, depending on the manufacturing decade of the carbon mic, and otherwise not that flat.

    I know the data is from old phones, but the idea is the same...use the frequency bandwidth that our brains respond to the most and leave the rest out.

    Excellent -- I'll give that a try!

    Thanks!
