Default Guitar in stereo sounds great. In mono very bad

Hi,

Have you some recording technique for good guitar sound in mono? I have two hi gain tracks which plays same riff (hard panned), but when I switch to mono they sounds much worse.

Are they the same performance? If so and one was delayed to create a Hass effect, that's the problem. Otherwise, might be better to hear it or understand more about what much worse means.

Two tracks was recorded as double tracking - first pass and then second pass on second track.

If the two tracks were played separately there should be little problem, however, two instruments playing exactly the same parts can have phasing issues.

As we all know, phasing problems occur when the same frequencies are 180 degrees out of phase. So the same instrument playing the same part could indeed have some frequencies out phase, but I think at the worst, it would just give a chorusing effect. Don't know for sure.

If it's single note lines, it could maybe be worse. Heh heh, never ran into it before, it would be interesting to hear.

Have this tracks the same fx chain (compressor, eq, amp\cabinet impulses, etc) on each?

Could you share a sample of this guitars?

Here's some examples. The same amp, two different kind of guitars (strat and superstrat) with different mic placement and cabinets. Panned 60/60%. No EQ, comps etc, just RAW.
