Most baddass 3 channel head I've had thus far.
Very nice, Matte!!!
You like it more than Bogner/VHT stuff??
The amp desgn is well over 7 years old and no expense/thought/care was spared in it's design and construction. I have a 101B coming in next week as well as an Egnater(massive guitar tracking overdubbing month). I'll certainly have a pretty broad view by the end of this month.
I think you could peel paint off the side of a house with that amp. Very cool stuff!
How does it compare to the Modena?
It is a beast. Matte is too. The 3100 is a kick ass three channel monster. Way more features than the Modena. Not quite as responsive but more gain and tons of options. It kills and during the week that I spent with it I LOVED it. Awesome amp. Can get super gainy with tons of girth .
Love this clip, as did our one-year old daughter (smiling, laughing, dancing...)
Sounds awesome - killer playing.
I really hope those guys find some dealers in the US soon. They'd probably sell a lot if people were able to try them.
I couldn't agree more.
Played a Modena last night. Snider's former amp. Great sound! Posted a short review in the Product Review section.
****! I love the way that sounds. Slammin' playing and production. When are you gonna release a CD of this stuff?
All the high gainers sound the same to me. Gain like that doesn't sound musical IMO. What's impressive, to me, is when you can get the thump and drive without all the buzzy non musical gain. Something like a Constellation can get brutal yet retain a sweetness and clearity not found in many amps for this type of music. Clean metal gain is what I look for. I had a 73' Marshall that could do that as well. Sustain, punch and bell like leads that stand out.
Of course I say this without hearing the amp you guys are talking about. Clips are near impossible to judge an amps feel on. For all I know that could have been a POD. Anyway I'm not trying to piss on anybodys parade. Matte's playing and recording is on a level I doubt I'll ever reach and I would be lying if I said I didn't respect his skills.
Just wondering out loud if anybody has a similar view of High Gain amps.
I LOVE His production skills (if Matte is doing it? Matte do you do all the production or share with others? ) I asked the same question about 6 months ago when he was posting wild clips.. ANyway, I used to love Fripp and Belew and EVERY one of their projects and Matte takes their stuff a step beyond to me
Matte is a madman for sure Eric. I love his playing and as I described it to him , it is a bit of Shawn Lane , meets Buckethead without the slop with his own sonic flare that really is the coolest to me.
Matte is at a level that very few guys I know of can play at and I love his playing. Put him in Rob Zombie's band and I would be a happy man as he would get a ton of exposure and Rob would flip over him. The guy is a very interesting player who should have an album out. I know it would do well. He is a phenominal .
Just from the minimal stuff I've heard Steve, I could tell he'd be 1 of my favorites.. No question about it.
That's a matter of personal preference and definitely dependent on the type of music you play. I love my distortion to have some "teeth", and the kind of stuff I play would sound pretty bad if I was using a less aggressive sounding amp. I know the qualities you're talking about and have enjoyed playing amps like you describe, but it's not the particular sound I chase. I do admit that I'm shifting towards high-gain amps that have more clarity overall, but that high-end grind still has to be there for me.
FWIW, I totally get off on Matte's clip. Makes me want to buy another Elmwood.
