G-Major: Which preamp and speaker simulator were used to record demo CD

Question

What preamp and speaker simulator were used during the recording of the G-Major demo cd?

Answer

The preamp used was a Soldano X-99, and the simulator was a Hughes & Kettner Red Box. They were connected like this: Guitar > Soldano > Red Box > G-Major > Amp.

Normally, it's recommended that you use the speaker simulator after the effects, which would also be the most logical thing to do - however - when recording the CD, we found that the above combination sounded better.
