    Hi,

    I was testing some ideas on one of my amps this morning and recorded two quick takes over a super cool Aussensaiter backing. Baker RF (finally with new strings) , Fuchs/Fender75 ProtoMule Mod, SM57, Tonespotter.

    Take 1 - less global neg feedback on poweramp http://www.scottlernermusic.com/oct/Aussen51fbx.MP3

    Take 2 - more global neg feedback on poweramp http://www.scottlernermusic.com/oct/Aussen47fb.MP3

    Sorry for the repetative playing. It was early this morning and I still had my bathrobe on......

    Which seems better? More feedback or less feedback? Subtle but different...

    Scott

    They both sound great and pretty similar on my little Creative Labs speakers. Possibly the first sounds a little smoother?

    Love your playing man, just awesome!

    Both tones were awesome,Scott!I'll take the first one,though-smoother to my ears.Second one was a tad edgier and more percussive,still excelent though.

    :jo

    I KNEW you would have to mention something about being half naked. So much for enjoying my lunch. Not a pleasant visual. :(



    First one. Second was thinner and brighter. Cool playing, but how can one enjoy it thinking of you with your bathrobe wide open. :eek: :mad:

    Sounds great no matter how you set up the amp.

    What is it about guys who wear pink shirts and garden??? LOL

    So Dave, was #1 or #2 more pleasing? Interesting how the opinions are varied.

    nice playing scott, as always

    to me, there was something subtly more present in the first one that made me like it a bit better ... a little more singing ... in the 2nd clip, while it had plenty of articulation, it seemed like you really had to work to get it to sustain and it didnt have quite enough push to get it really going into a sweet bloom ...

    as always, stellar note selection and phrasing

    thanks for sharing

    Hi Scott,
    Excellent playing!
    I like them both. I found the first clip to have a "nicer" tone than the second. Less harsh and shrill sounding, sounded more like a mellow sax than the second.
    Either way, I wish that I'd sound that good.

    very cool as usual...

    i think the second one was better to my ears. more complex--less choked up in the mids.

    both were great though!

    peace,

    Thanks bros!

    Thanks goodness I haev a 3 position toggle on the back of the amp to switch between these two voices and 1 other as well! hehe

    Both are nice but on different days I gravitate to one or the other or the other or..... etc.... Must turn off soldering iron!

    Hi Scott,

    I liked the second take the best.
    Smoother and warmer and fit the backing better.

    Cheers,

    Maybe it's me, but I don't hear much difference except a slight treble roll-off on the second one.

    I enjoyed the playing in the meantime. :)

    I liked the first one better. Nicer "envelope" or attack to the note to me. Better "bite" too.

    Scott, you have such a strong signature tone that I'm not sure anyone other than you can really tell a significant difference in your tones when you use a consistent approach. I think the tone on both is superb, but I'd be hard pressed to pick one over the other. On the other hand, I think you played the turn around better on the second clip.
