I'm going Solid State for a couple reasons. One, I honestly really don't like the tone. And more importantly, the only reason I can see you doing this is to prove that solid states can sound good (which they can). Proving that tube amps can sound bad is stupid since it's kind of a given. Either way, I don't really care as it's not a tone that I hope to achieve.

I'm a fan of this analysis.

With that said, this entire thread is meaningless because the quality of the recording equipment plays a huge role in the sound that we are hearing.

I have no idea but whatever it is it sounded very hollow and too bassy like all the low-end was mushed together. But I don't listen to any metal so I'm not exactly qualified to judge

I did dig the tone on the physical first draft track more but I guess that that might be due to any extra tweaking that you did to it. ^And I agree that these things only show how important recording technique and equipment is.

I have no idea, it's really tough to determine quality when you're just listening to an audio sample off the internet. When you have a plugged in guitar in your hands it's a lot easier to distinguish between good and bad tone.

Edit:^come on... Just look at it like it's a game. /edit

There are some very strange volume things going on in that clip. The guitar is getting random volume boosts which makes it hard to listen to...

Anyway, I will always maintain that any streeming audio looses enough of the signal that telling whether its solid state or tube is not realy and educated choice but mearly a guess.

My guess is that it's a solid state or it's a modern tube amp that uses a FET preamp for distortion before it's tube preamp.

I don't think he's being uptight, just stating his opinion on the whole thing. I mean, we're listening through computer speakers, rather than being next to the amp. The SS vs Tube thing dosn't have much to do with it in this case. I go by how it sounds, wether it's SS or tube, and that clip didn't sound good at all to my ears.

JMO Btw.

Yeah bro, maybe work on your songs and your tone a little bit. It's all muddled up, and I can't really identify or identify WITH any particular part of that song. It just seems like a semi-random, chaotic ball of mush that's going on there.

Maybe work on the mixing a bit?

Well if you want an opinion on your tone, I very much disliked it.

It has to be solid state because I couldnt detect any warmth in it at all. It also doesnt cut through the mix, but I think this is mostly because that song hasn't been mixed properly , it's sounding pretty flat and lifeless.

The song itself also has no structure. The main riff is ok but the song just needs alot more thought and work.

this looks like a blatant attempt at advertising your myspace page.

Also, it doesn't matter whether its solid state or tube or hybrid - it sounded bad anyway.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

this is the most thinly veiled attempt at showing off your 'music', use the band promotion forums for that

you wouldnt make this thread unless you have something to prove. i.e. SS can sound good therefore there is zero point to this thread

there is allready numerous SS/tube/moddeler guessing game threads, make one of them with clips on your profile if you want
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.
