I know who he is, have him in my msn. make sure you try SoloC and 8505 those are the two best at the moment imo. Best impulse would be s-preshigh by catharsis and my fav impulse loader at the moment is voxengo boogex.
XLR out is fine, just make sure that toneport has an XLR in.
Aimed right at the center of the speaker? Might want to move it a little bit so it aims at the edge of the dustcap.
I was just curious, not implying that you shouldn't be using it or anything.
One of the reasons I'm sick of my Mesa is because it's too muddy without a boost in front of it. But I'm starting to really pick up the effect that damn pedal has on the tone. It's like putting distortion on top of overdrive. I want to hear tube saturation, not some diode clipping the input signal. Which apparently still happens even if you set the gain to 0.
I know what you mean about mic'ing. At this point I don't think I can really capture tone properly without a few mics to phase. One just doesn't cut it.
Yeah, i clearly understand you...haha, raising me hands was just for the fun of it...haha
Yeah, i do work hard at playing cleanly....i do have a lot of recordings which i dont do these kind of stuff....thing is, when i plan before playing, and play on the spot, i play differently...
When i'm recording, i do think of the emotion behind it, the groups of notes workin together and my soul put into it...
But these vids i put up are nothin planned at all....i'm playin right there on the spot, what you see is what you get, every mistake and stuff...the thing is whenever i start playin on the spot, i go to this natural mode of note blasting, things i'm comfortable with instead of pulling off some 'dirty' playin....
Necro you're not using that BM on the XXX are you?
I felt lethargic after a 1:00 .. Understand the need for Variety.. I'm not a shredder, but I would have liked to have seen some more technique Other than just speed picking scales.. IMHO, the true melodic shredders such as Joe Satriani, steve vai, etc... have a Mastery of Legato and sweeping skills.. to my ears at least. (to expand on the speed picking comment) .. I find that unless speed picking is sparingly used to lightly flavor a guitar piece, It makes the whole thing sound Amateur and completely recycled..
credit to you though for your Clean playing and obvious talent !!!
another snoozecore band
Necrophagist777: would you be kind to post some preamp tones I've asked for?
pics or GTFO
Seriously, does anyone use the "regular" sized Jazz III's?
THEY ARE BUILT FOR DWARVES DAMNIT.
On topic: I'd use the rock licks picks from them, they look like they have better attack.
It's just that I prefer buying new amps, over searching around the web for a used one and waiting for it too be delivered.
Jam, if you like the Savage, check out the Blackmore... it's like the Savage but better.
I also hear from you guys that Marshall MG's are terribad? Why's this? <-- Not my main question, but I've been meaning to ask, heh.
That's pretty much one of the only complaints I've heard about the Powerball, is that it has a hard time cutting. I haven't heard the Savage yet, but I'll definitely check it out. I'd have to find one used though as $2,500 is getting to the point of ridiculousness.
I am Selling my Mesa though, and sold my LTD, so, that should make things a little easier. The quest for grail tone never ends.
Would you be nobel and record your XXX's preamp (FX loop send) to the PC.
I want to emulate the XXX sound on my GT-10.
I have managed to emulate the sound of my VK on my unit almost perfectly.
Here some samples of the Real VK preamp recorded direct:
Here some GT-10 copy of the VK preamp:
You see where I'm going... I want to bring a nice tube sound in my 10 pound metal
box of doom.
If you will, record the Crunc & Ultra channels with Flat settings 5,5,5.
Congrats on your amp Necro. You must be having a field day over there.
I'm still trying to decide what my next amp is gonna be, but I think I've pretty much narrowed it down to the Powerball. Nothing else seems to be grabbing my attention. I tried the JCM2000 TSL 100 and it was pretty sick, but, I dunno, everyone plays JCM's.
I'm not sure who this is or if he's posted already but what do you make of this?
lol i have'nt updated that thing in a long long time. i also have a few other guitars i never added that i've gotten.
iam pretty sure the xxx is a decent amp by any standards.
Well if it's not a very good amp, the sound isn't going to be very good now is it?
you do know how actives work right? they literally make the same consistent sound because of the preamp that's on the pickup. alot of guitarist use them because they can have a really light weight guitar and still have that heavy sound. if you put a emg on a plywood body it will sound the same as a mahogany body.
in my comment i never said metalcore used no skill i said those kids dont know a damn thing about guitar. there are some good metalcore guitarist iam sure there is because there is such a huge amount of metalcore bands. all actives in my opinion are a waste of good wood because a active cancels out the sound of the body wood blackout or emg or w/e.
most of the things i say are true though 90% of the people who get a schecter are little fanboys saying omg emgs omg OFR omg mahogany. most of them dont know anything about what some of those things even do. everything is schecter is made to market to the fanboys of "core" music which is basically everyone where i live. none of them know how to play guitar worth of ****, they all own schecters, and at least half of them own a hellraiser. and if you really do look at it schecter does use cheaper wood then most guitar companies that's not bull****. so iam basing this off logic. cheap wood + emg hell i could have done that with a high end squire and buy a set of emgs. the squire and emg would cost less then what a schecter would have cost and i would still have enough money to pay for new hardware and a setup.
well no, it's not that, its just that there are certain problems that can't really be diagnosed unless you actually have the amp sitting there in front of you that you can look at. The problem he has is very peculiar, which is why the other guy probably suggested that no one here could really give that much advice.
Point it straight at the speaker (no angle) right where the circle meets the cone
That's why you bring it an amp tech, not a guitar shop.
Don't touch anything. The people on this forum may be able to tell you what amps and pedals and guitar are good and bad, but i wouldn't trust anyone to diagnose a problem like that for you. Take it to a tech and have it looked at by a professional.
hmmm ohk then. i am currently using 9 - 42's in drop A, so thats why i needed thincker gauges. i'll probably go with the seven string idea. thanx
That's all fine and dandy... but I'm still waiting on those pics of a hot blonde cheerleader who plays a schecter...
... I'm sure he's beautiful
I really want an ENGL. They sound so sexy! With the odd midrange they have to it, I'd imagine it would NAIL Killswitch Engage's tone. Ironically, the 2 ENGLs I'm GASing for, are the two you have (they're the only ones I have experience with though) (Blackmore + Savage)
