Here's how the "normal channel" sounds like:
Tonestack on 10, Volume on ~5, bright off, reverb. Strat with WCR SR pickups.
and a softer setup:
And this one is on the "vibrato channel"
I made a few random recordings just to show how the amp behaves, so please excuse the lame playing.:huh
All clips were recorded with a sennheiser e606 on a E-MU 0202 soundcard and no post processing.
I'm a newbie at amp recording, so don't expect any pro style sounds...
a clean tour over...
Eminence Delta pro.
Just check with your cab dimensions. I had to ...dig a few millimeters to make them fit in my 1982 twin.
But...what a sound! I can almost ...see the lows ;)
Huge headroom too, and you will hear the sound your amp makes with no coloration.
The Pros are EVM12L clones, but...

After repairing some of the previous owner's signs of bad use with epoxy and sawdust, the re-Tolexing progress started right away...
Then it was Oxblood time...
So after the cab was re-done, i had to install the Delta-Pros in the cab, only to...
About 7 years ago i bought a heavily used early 80's twin.
A local tech made it work, and some time later i replaced the worn speakers with Eminence Legends.
...i was never really pleased with the tone, so i built many pedals in order to make it sound good, and i succeded quite a...
I have Callaham stuff in all my Strats or Strat-likes and i am really satisfied with them.
A couple were built with the Callahams, but two were upgraded and the tonal difference/improvement was quite evident.
In my case, i call it IMPROVEMENT because i really dig the result.
After a long period of gathering the pieces and finishing the wood, it's about time to start putting it together...
The wood is Warmoth (1pc featherweight Swamp Ash / slight birdseye maple), which i finished in waterbased lacquer for the body and Tung Oil for the neck.
It's a total...
Thanks for your replies, guys!
I'll surely post pics of my finished project, but that will take at least couple of months.
I just received the wooden parts. (Warmoth 1pc Swamp Ash body / fat maple neck / total vintage)
...the fun has just begun!
That's why i rarely use the notch positions. They always sounded relatively thinner to me.
This time i'll go with a non-RW/RP middle.
Btw, i'll use Lollar Tweeds.
I asked Jason and he will wind me a set with that spec.
Can't wait to find out about it myself...
Thanks buddastrat! :AOK
Has anyone tried a non RW/RP middle pickup in a Strat?
Some people say it makes a difference in tone, and i heard it even does on pos 1, 3 and 5... :confused:
(the opposing magnetic field of the mid pu "steals off" something from the others...)
Others say it only lacks the hum...
