View Full Version : Robben Ford esque sound from a Tone King Imperial Clips/Video
07-06-2012, 10:51 AM
Hi here's my Video of my Ibanez As103 going straight in (no pedals on-t1m buffer at the end of the board) to my Tone King Imperial's lead side.
Mix between an sm57 close mic'd and an se2000 in the room.
Not a 100% emulation but it's not meant to be, just sounded similar to my ears.

Nice playing and tone...Definitely some Robben going on. Of course the Help the Poor track helps, but your phrasing is good.

I'll defer to dogears here- Great touch for sure and your attack is on point-
I think you could roll on the presence a bit but I am not super sure about the Imperial Tone Stack..
That TTYD era tone seemed to have the presence fairly wide open..
Anyway- regardless of the RF Copping- You've got great tone and good chops..Keep killin'.

Moved to proper forum.
Looking foreward to checking it out when I get near speakers!

One of the best clips I've heard with Humbucker's through the TK IMPERIAL besides the video clip that Lance Keltner did about 5 months ago with a Fibernare HB based guitar!
Great playing and phrasing! Just what I needed a little more icing on the cake to complete the switchover and purchase to the TK Imperial that I'll be getting
sometimes later this week!;)
Black/White color has grown on me since I first started looking at the color options about 2 weeks ago!
