    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    Ok, now i'm not even sure if i ever played the records of my Rush Trough Time. So you're saying RTT isn't the three first albums in one box? In the old days i would only play my c90 casettes that friends would tape for me, until i got it all on CD. So anyhow no worries, i have all the goodies...

    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    The big difference with VT is that they pretty much stepped away from the way they always arranged. Instead of mainly riff/arrangement driven, VT is mainly groove driven. That's why i call it their RHCP channeling. Imagine, Geddy playong both the Flea and Kiedis parts. But hey, we all know that...

    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    I studied jazz guitar at the conservatory so i extensively studied the craft and i'm unfortunately not baffled a lot anymore, but these guys still manage to do so. Even last night listening to Vapor Trails and Snakes & Arrows. Vapor Trails is probably another Rush album that wasn't as widely...

    Super reverb impedance question

    [Electronics dummy question alert!] What happens if you stick a suitable 6 ohms resistor in series between the 2 ohms output and the 8 ohms input on the Rivera? [/alert!]

    Silent practice - my amp w/ IR Load box or use a modeler

    It won't sound like your cab while you're standing next to it. An IR is the sum of cab+room ambiance+mic+micpreamp. What that will get you at most is the sound of your Friedman 212 miced up in a specific recording room with a specific mic preamp.

    Silent practice - my amp w/ IR Load box or use a modeler

    I have the regular Suhr RL without IR's, IR's are added in the software studio environment. It works great because i use my amps and everything sounds and feels great. Modelers and software amps however offer lots of practical benefits, but soundwise those just can't deliver what a real amp can...

    Cab question - what does more $$ buy you?

    Since i decided, 20y ago, not to haul 412s anymore i played 112s and 212s. My current favorites are the Bluguitar Fatcab thiele/ported closed back 112 and an open back 212 Dumble clone. This monday however i'm expecting to receive a Barefaced Audio Reformer 112. If it's as good as i expect it...

    Help "Fatten Up" Tone

    A 212 isn't a halfstack. The 212 a pain to haul? How old are you and your son, 90 and 70? If a 212 is too painfull then you better get used to 112's including the disadvantages that go with them.

    Greatest Bands that Performed Without Tracks

    Early Rush. To be able to play those live with the trio was a main concern during the writing stages of the older songs.
