    What are you listening to right now?

    Sorry, i lied. I've been quite obsessed by Rush, especially Hemispheres, since 1980, over 2000 weeks ago. I have listened or played along to Hemispheres at least 2 times a week, very conservative estimated, so the counter is way over 4000 times. Crazy... :oops:

    Anyone know how to play Eugene's Trick Bag?

    The intro is combined hammer-ons and right indexfinger tapping on the 3nd string.

    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    I'm 57! :p Due to tinnitus i can't but listen at very low volume, it seems to me that listening that way softens the crushing. Can't compare between loud and soft so you have to try for yourself. I just read a review of the remix, according to the reviewer it's a different world. I will...

    NCD! Barefaced Audio Reformer 112- AMAZING CAB!

    WOW, the Reformer 112 is just awesome! It sounds wide, open, fat, loud, 3D, with great definition. The Reformer is a very precise tool that both tone and dynamics wise monitors what's put in. It offers massive control in comparison with traditional cabs. Dialing in the amp gets so much easier...

    Separate preamp and power amp... Why?

    I gigged, toured, and recorded about 20 years with a small rack setup and a single 412, it was just great. But in the end i didn't want to haul all that stuff anymore, to me that was the big con.

    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    I totaly agree about the brick wall. I guess they will have had their reasons, but it makes it hard to keep focussed. I agree on S&A too, especially if you listen to it right after VT, S&A sometimes kind of sounds artificial to me.

    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    Well it's still Rush, so we can't expect bread and butter grooves. ;)

    Geddy’s Voice on Caress of Steel

    Of course Archives, i'm getting real old. :facepalm However in my defence, i haven't played a record in probably 35 years. :rimshot

    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...

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

    Considering ease of use the RLIR is the no brainer.

    Super reverb impedance question

    LOL, of course, what was i thinking?? :facepalm

    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...
