It's the amp I'm thinking of buying. It has a pretty good sound, and even at low volumes I've gotten great tones while trying it out.
The Girth channel can do some heavy tones, but don't expect a thrashy/deathmetal/core sound. It's ideal for Sabbath, or at least I find it is. Maybe with an OD pedal you might be able to pull off heavier sounds. The bright channel can be set to a nice warm bluesy sound to a really clean, sparkly tone. I also find it reacted well with the guitar volume and tone nobs (I think I was using an entry level Gaudin)
It's worth a try, but don't buy blindly on the internet. Find it at a local shop and try for yourself. I've heard many mixed reviews from friends. I love it, but some hate it.
I may be wrong, but i think he's saying that when he plays he not only hears the sound of the strings, but the sound of the pick hitting the strings. Like, a little thwack or something. I get it too, but not often.
I used to get it but over time you develop a way around it. It's mostly technique although string gauge may play a small role. Try out a slighter heavier gauge and see if that resolves the problem. If not, get a slightly thicker pick and/or keep the pick more "in". By that, I mean leave less of the pick out to hit the string. I usually leave about 3mm between the tip of the pick and my finger.
It's the Soul man. You don't need to have crazy technique to sound good. In fact, to most non-musicians, it's easier to listen to simpler music. It's the reason so much Pop music is just simple rhythms and such. But still, the Soul prevails over anything.
Smoke a joint, play guitar and write. And listening to some music, whatever i'm in the mood for. Or if drugs arent possible, I hang out with a friend to get my mind off of the shittiness and remember that life is good.
Well, I'm normally against such big gaps, but at the same time I do believe that if both parties are mature enough to decide what they wanna do, they should go for it. That being said, my parents have a 13 year difference, and my mom was 19 when they got married. Creeps the hell out of me xD
So here's the deal. I recently bought a Fender Tele Deluxe '72 reissue and today I got a Danelectro Cool Cat Drive (v1). Now... I need a new amp to go with my set up.
I play a wide range of styles, and I'm mostly a rhythm guitarist. I need a good on board distortion that can go from bluesy crunch to some higher gain stuff. Although I love metal, I don't need THAT much gain (But it would be nice).
My band plays stuff in more of a medium-high gain range. Sometimes punk, sometimes old school rock'n'roll.
Also, nothing too loud or way too bulky
I'm willing to buy used. I live in Montreal, Quebec. My budget can go up to $1200 CAD.
What about those small tube amps? I've heard good things about the Blackheart BH-5H among others. Also, I think Bogner has a new tube amp that was designed for apartments. I'm pretty sure it's the Panama.
You know... You could just say that a Samurai would be able to quickly get around the Knight and manage to tip him over. Or if the said samurai wanted to be a troll, he would twist the knights helmet then beat it with a spoon
Coming from a band in which everyone has a huge difference in taste, I know how you feel. It might be complicated at first, but at the same time it can lead to some very unique sounds.
I find that it works best to agree on learning one song each member has chosen. Something that everyone can play, but mostly reflects that persons taste. It gives everyone a feel of what the person likes, and a feel on how to play that style. Eventually you guys can just share riffs and ideas.
At least in my band, we each write full songs on our own and then let the other members add their flavor into the mix. Works pretty well.
Gah, it pisses me off too. That and comma use. Nobody knows how to use a comma anymore. I see so many people say 'the most important thing, is to have good grammar'. That's not correct! The comma is unnecessary. People are butchering the language, making it ugly, and calling it 'evolution'. Learn your goddamn language, you're embarrassing the rest of us who took the time to fully understand it.
Your last comma should be a semi-colon. But I agree with both this statement and TS.
