Which county are you from, just out of curiosity? Metallica's early tone is fairly easy, just drop your mids a tad at a time till you find something close. From memory, Paget uses Triple Recs? No idea which revision, but they've always had a fairly flat response to my ears. His rhythm always sounds a little scooped to me, but his leads usually have a stronger midrange. My advice would be to set a lead tone you like and trim the mids out of it a little with your EQ pedal for your rhythm. Dont push the front end of the AVT with a tubescreamer, you're just pushing diodes.
Disclamer: This post does not reflect my official position of the use of midrange in a live or studio mix. It is simply to help TS find the tone he's after.
They overheat for a number of reasons. Part of it is an undersized power transformer. Part of it is morons who don't know how to properly bias their power tubes, and part of it is due to the anti-oscillation cap on the power tubes that blows and burns a nice chunk out of the board.
Cheers, didn't know that. Learn something new every day.
DSL>TSL. Cant say I really liked those clips, but the DSL is a much better amp than it seems to get credit for. My tech see's alot of them with overheating issues come across his bench though, dunno, may just be that whole "cancer cluster" phenomenon?
Out of those i'd take the Savage. But seriously, spend some more time with the Cobra. Isnt an easy amp to dial in and you need to open it right up but its such a tight, agressive, clear midrange voicing. The cleans go without saying. Sounds like exactally what you're after?
And it's a bolt on neck, ash body with a poplar top. It's the closest I could find too. Dont want to go custom shop. I dont have that kind of money to spare, nor am I willing to take the loss that would come with selling it secondhand. Cheers anyway guys!
So here goes: - Thumb or Streamer - 5 String - Neck Through - Bubinga Body - Ovangkol or Maple Neck - Ebony or Wenge Fretboard - P/TJ (preferably) Pickup Set - Must atleast have a P in the neck. - Preferably Pre-'92 (not a must, but it'd be nice)
I know it's asking a lot... but I've not been able to find one. Thanks heaps for your time guys!
Listen to JohnnyApplecore, he lives in Raccoon City and clearly doesn't have the Tyrant Virus. Also, it's common knowledge that any Dean under 3000AUD sucks harder than... no, I'm not going to finish that sentence...
I'm no expert, but you pitch seems reasonable. Keep it simple, stay out of your falsetto, maybe move it down a little bit. Biggest thing that stood out to me was your breath control? Sounded like you were a little short at times, google some exercises, they're dead easy and it'll improve your timbre tenfold. AND SING LOUDER! But honestly, I dont think you have a bad voice at all. Best of luck mate!
The list on them's like 400USD right? So I'll take that as your budget for the head? You melodic death... You live in america... Seriously, Keep saving, keep trawling your local Craigslist till you find a USED (dont question it) Peavey 5150/6505 you can afford. You should only be 100-200USD off. Youll thank me later.
Depending on your budget, get in touch with Tim at Bareknuckle. Have a chat to him about a Painkiller/Nailbomb set, also, the Aftermath may be what your after by the way Tim describes it, but I've not heared enough clips of it to decide for myself?
Was just on splawn's site when I noticed that their amps have a mains voltage selector. Kind of a suprise cause most american manufacturers seem to wanna be able to keep their international distributers rich by selling set voltage amps *cough* bogner. Unfortunately the selector goes from 100, 120, 220, 230V. Australian voltage is 240 so would it be safe to run a Splawn on 230V over here? Thanks guys.
