It's kinda ****ty tbh. I see you've found the type of sound you're after, but the actual tone needs help.

Ugh. Dude, that sounds nothing like Synyster, even though his tone is bad, too. And what's up with the computer speakers on top?

When I was reading what you were using as a rig, I was expecting worse.

Like Brett said, it's OK for home use at very best, but it sounds gross TBH. But, I think you did the best you could with the gear you had.
Not sure why you had those computer speakers hooked up though.

I'm just glad you didn't have a phaser pedal dangling around anywhere.

I've done much better with my dad's Squirr Tele, but then again, his is an old MIJ one, and I have a much better amp.

I mean, I guess you did pretty well for what you had to work with.

Oh the sound was coming out of the computer speakers.

The two amps are the heads.

That explains a lot. Look, if you want to play two amps at once, you can get an A/B switcher and select both at once. Computer speakers aren't meant to be used like that.

That's actually really, really good. The tone is nice and smooth. Have you got any pics of the back showing the wiring?

reminds anyone of this?



That was my first thought upon seeing his "rig of doom."

So, you're actually 9? Pretty cool that you like metal at that age. I would've shat my pants if I heard metal when I was that young.

EDIT: Did the math wrong.

Could be worse, could be better. If you like the sound you're getting from it then sweet, thats all that really matters at the moment.

I've never been a huge fan of the Tele sound and Ashton amps have never really done it for me.. the amp distortion just wasn't my thing. So, uh, why the computer speakers instead of just the amp? Just curious

Hahaha, same. But thats kind've a given.

Mad distortion? No disrespect to the guys setup, but theres distortion and then theres placing a bee hive in your speakers.

edit: It could also be the mic that was on the video camera that was making it sound... not that great.

Heres what you should do:

1. Undo your "rig"
2. Just play your Guitar through your guitar amp
3. Chuck your computer speakers out of the window
4. Give your self a pat on the back for being creative
Edit: 5. Slap yourself in the face for asking if Fenders are high gain amps

Sounds like someone shaking a cereal packet if you ask me, I can't believe I just paused Tommy to hear that.

If you like it, good for you. But please, if a responisble adult ever lets you near a decent valve amp....don't try plugging it into computer speakers. Kaboom!
