Just thought I'd share. I'm not here to debate modelers vs. 20,000 Mesa boogie rigs. But you gotta admit, no matter which side of the fence you're on, this sounds pretty cool. (if you haven't heard the original, check out 4:01 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFXvfBL4WkU) When you forget about all the brushing up and tweaking done at the mixing stage, it's pretty much the same.

Sounds pretty thin. I think that the rhythm tone would be even worse.

I think this calls for a rock 'n' roll proverb...

During soundcheck for the 1984 "Monsters of Rock" festival, Eddie Van Halen let Angus Young play on his rig. So with the Frankenstrat in hand, running through Eddie's legendary rig, Angus Young started crankin'. And it sounded like...Angus Young playing a guitar.

The moral to the story: just ****in' play guitar.

Absolutely. Fingertone is far more important than your right 95% of the time.

Definitely not exactly the same, but if you can't afford to drop a couple grand it's a good way to go

I agree! Makes me wonder what it would sound like if JP himself played with that preset...

Probably very close to the way it sounds now. The example with Van Halen and Angus was with two players with very different styles.

Oh god, not this again...

John Petrucci plugged into a deluxe reverb reissue isn't going to sound like Dream Theater.

There is a difference between technique and tone...no matter what John Petrucci plays on, it will sound like John Petrucci playing, but it won't sound like his tone.

Fingers do not make up 95% of your tone. They make up probably around 5%, and that just comes from the way your fingers hit the strings.

+1

Angus Young will always sound like Angus Young regardless of rig because even if he was playing through a Krankenstein he'd be playing 3 power chords and the pentatonic scale. But it wouldn't be his TONE. It would be the tone of the Krankentein, not the tone of a JTM45 or JMP50.

You guys are confusing tone with style. Petrucci's style is in his fingers. His tone is in his gear. That's the way it is for everybody.

Do you know where I can get some good Marshall fingers? I've found my tone sounding a bit too Fender-y lately.

EDIT: On topic, that doesn't come close to nailing it IMO. It lacks the clarity. It does sound nice though.

****ing wat. 95% of your tone comes from your fingers?

Why dont we all just get an MIM fender and a MG then.

I never spent 3k on my rig to have some random head off the net tell me id sound exactly the same through my old 10 watt SS yamaha amp.

Nice tone tho, i feel itd sound better in person.

Try switching out the pre-knuckles to Tung-Sols.

This would be sig'd if I had room. Instead, I give you this.

The facts of life everyone!


Sounding good = Good tone + good technique

John Petrucci with a Dumble sounds like? John Petrucci with a Dumble!

If you have bad tone, you will sound bad

If you have bad technique you will sound bad


BTW, the POD X3 sounded great imo

Tonally it sounded like some bastardization between Steve Vai and Petrucci. Was pretty decent though.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
