    oo - Great drive tones and playing Rid

    I didn't realise you made pedals too. It Looks kind a like the Carl Martin units in design. Clearly many talents.

    BT's a right cracker too. where can I find that little Gem?

    OO - there were big gaps between solos. You almost caught me out there!.

    Thanks guys...the Althrax track is here!
    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/338182
    There was some keyboard solo piece there:D
    Did not want to blow over that one...
    Ah the pedals....well yes I work for CM, have done so for 7 years now...I am normally pretty lowkey about it here....with all the rules and such...the admins always seems to suspect us for spamming away in wild abandon;)
    The drive is a oneoff for a friend I have:)
    But roughly it is based upon a MK HDB drive.....
    Used my Marshall DRP-1 solidstate preamp recorder, togther with a CM EQ/preamp.
    Pretty simple stuff!

    To Niels: Great stuff as usual. I just don't see how you get that sound. What CM eq/preamp is it that you are using?

    To all others: Last year I had the opportunity to visit Carl Martin and Niels (Rid) and that was a very nice experience. Everyone was very cool and the CM pedals definitely deserves their good repitation. Niels is one of the designers behind the CM Plexidrive.

    Cheers,

    Hi Niels,

    Thanks for the info. Did you put the eq beofre or after the DRP-1?

    Cheers,

    Hi Mats..just before...then I fool around with what ever sound I want...sometimes I also use the Contour and boost as well...mostly on top for clean sounds!
