Steven Tyler screams
 
Hey Jay. I read somewhere that Tyler's screams are actually very quiet in volume and he lets the vocal chain do the work in terms of volume. Is this true?
Also what was the vocal chain?
Thanks for doing this.

Steven's scream is not quiet! He's got a lot of power and energy behind it.

When we used speakers, instead of headphones, sometimes had a Shotgun 405, into the Spectrasonics pre, then an LA-2A and into a PEQ-1A. Other times, with phones, a U-87 followed by the same chain.
