I'd have to say George Lynch on Under Lock & Key album, i love his tone
I also love Slash's tone from the albums Illusion albums but from the live songs on Lies i thought his tone sounded too bassy and you could really hear the V30 mid spike didnt sound to well on that track but Izzy's tone was really nice and smooth
Oh **** off twat. So you're telling me songs like Forever Free, Hold On To My Heart, I Don't Need No Doctor and Scream Until You Like It don't have pop elements? Stop cluttering up the thread with shit, no one cares if they're glam or not.
Back on topic, I bought The Crimson Idol a year ago after hearing so much about it being a work of immense genius, but found it massively underwhelming. There are some cool ideas (The Great Misconseptions of Me in particular, the way the song is made up of all the others from the album as if to reflect on the past) and wonderful vocals by Blackie (The Gypsy Meets The Boy anyone?), but this whole album suffers from a horrible case of "Maiden-itis" in which the guitar-progressions stick to, for the most part, the E5 D5 C5 D5 E5 progression. The drumming however, oh lord the drumming.. this is some of the worst drumming I've heard on any album. The Fills every 10 seconds just completely ruins any rhythm the songs have going for them. I wouldn't mind so much if they were good fills, but these are just annoying little rolls on the rack toms. It's like the drummer (one of the two, anyway) WANTED to piss me off listening to this record. Massively over-rated album.
LOL kid learn your music before you try and start an argument.
i dont see why i need to upgrade my amp, i just got this and i like it alot, and when i do shows im just gonna mic it, i dont need headroom for cleans since i rarely even write songs with cleans, when the time comes im going to buy a bigger amp but this suits me perfect for now.
Ok so since I have my Blackstar Head with my Eminence Private Jack speaker I just love the growling tone I have and after I buy a few pedals I wanted im going to get a high end guitar for live use when I move and get a band.
Im lookin at ESP Jackson and BC Rich.
Im thinking of an ESP Alexi 600, Jackson RR3 (I belive the Japan model on ebay I seen), a RR24, BC Rich NJ V Deluxe, and the new BC Rich Iron Bird Pro.
I've played the ESP Alexi 600 that a buddy of mine had for sale it was an earlier model the white one with the Razor Blade inlays, I liked it but the neck seemed kind of thick, I've played a mid range RR i dont remember the model but it was used for like $499 so it could have been a 3, I liked the neck on it a lot better than my Les Paul.
I havent tried any of the high end BC Richs but ive heard they are great guitars from reviews.
I also dont like the fact the bc richs are mahogony since they are heavier and I want something Alder or Basswood so I can fly around on stage with, part of the reason I dont like my les paul.
Basically the style i play is from heavy metal (Priest, WASP, Maiden, Accept, Ozzy, Dio, Sabbath ) stuff like that to 80s Hair Metal and Hard Rock (Dokken, Whitesnake, Ratt, Scorpions, KISS, Warrant, Poison)
My favorite guitarist are Lynch, Doug Aldrich(W.S.), Chris Holmes(W.A.S.P.), Randy Rhoads, Warren Demartini, Alexi Laiho.
Just to give you an Idea, and I always want to keep the post short and simple but i end up with a wall of text haha sorry about that.
Also one of my FAVORITE necks i have ever played on was an ESP EC1000 thin U shaped neck. I have very big hands so thin necks are really comfortable
i've recently changed the way I put my thumb behind the neck and do it like you are with my thumb pointing to the headstock, this is much more comfortable for me when im playing do to my really long fingers, i notice my fingers are much more accurate that way
I was taught you cant run positive to ground, and the wire would just burn up?
reason for this is I bought an Eminence Private Jack in 8ohms, and i want to wire it up with an 8ohm Eminence Govenor for a 2x12 cab since my amps lowest impedance is 8 ohms i have to wire it in series for a 16 ohm load
you want something like a green back maybe? or a g12h-65 pre-rola? the eminence wizards are good. I think you're looking for a scumback though.
well actually found out that Chris used JMP Cabs with Celestions so if they were 1970s cabs they had to be Greenbacks or G12h 65's, i heard that Lynch used greenbacks in the early dokken days i dont remember what Randy used
from Eminence's clips im liking the Private Jack and the Wizard the best, and the Tonespotter is suppose to be similar to a g12h 65 but its really hard to tell on those clips and im really worried about buying a speaker because i cant really try them out
i have $90 to buy a speaker and thats why im going with Eminence because they are in my budget if i go the Greenback style route and ive heard nothing but good reviews on Eminence
I might buy the G12-65 clone or a Vet 30 not sure yet what will suit a Blackstar for an 80s hair metal tone, one of my favorites is Chris Holmes from WASP and he had old celestions in his cab which im sure they have to be the g12 65, the cab was a 70s jmp cab
Im trying to record with my Blackstar HT 5 emulated speaker/headphone output.
Idk if other amps have something like this or not so i got a few questions...
How can I record and hear what im playing at the same time? I can record if i plug into the microphone input on the back of my computer but since its the mic jack i cant hear the amp, I can plug it into the blue jack in the back thats next to the speaker jack on the computer and i can play the amp through the cumputer speakers, can i record through this?
His early tones were stock but he was definitely using modded Marshalls around that time. If you want to come close, set up your Blackstar for a Marshall type tone with a decent amount of gain, slightly less than what you'll want overall and use a TS to boost it that little bit extra. Use a G12H30 loaded cab. V30s might work as well.
you know at first i wasnt going to go with a V30 because its a typical speaker that a lot of ppl use but i can see why.
I heard thje Super V12 is like a v30 but a little warmer and fuller? not to sure
i wish youtube had more videos so i could hear what the difference in a gh12 and a v30 is
