    The sustain in this amp is beyond cool! You can dial in as much as you want, without it getting gritty. :eek: Yea it gets more compressed, but thats what makes it so much fun to play at times. LOL! The sustain is so long, it makes you play differently, and you have to adjust. Especially because it is the smooth sustain, it kind of fools you. It does not SOUND like there should be that much sustain. For guys who like to hold notes for a long time, this is your ticket! Im so use to playing with an archtop,(which has VERY little sustain) its taking me a while to figure this animal out. Its really almost like playing a violin, or a totally different instrument. You can phrase in a totally different manner, and play WAY less notes.
    If you heard the other clip, compare it to this one. This fits WAY better with this type of sound. I just use all the relative minor scales to change it up as well. I like this take a lot, and I used my PRS Artist III semi hollow\Trem, which is my favorite electric guitar.

    Fourth clip down titled "Fuchs with PRS Artist III".

    What exactly is an "Artit"? I searched the porn sites, but couldn't find that one. :D


    Sounds pretty good Tag. I have to say though, so far I still like the Em Pro clips. I'm sure it'll come around when you get the Fuchs dialed in.

    Yeah - it's never been used before.
    So few people are hip to that guide tone + tension approach.
    They should teach it somewhere. ;)

    Sounds like your havin' fun, Tag. Cool.

    On my way - might be a while...

    Some nice lines in there, Tag.
    If you're diggin' the tone and it's helping you express what you hear, that's all that matters.
    Tone's a subjective thing, so all that counts is your take.

    I told Scott on the phone I have been stealing his lines left and right. The one diminished thing is a direct quote from Scott, I think thats what he meant, not that he "invented" the flat 9. :)

    The entire minor modality of this take is from listening to so much kenny Garrett lately.
    Thanks for listening and for the nice comments, I appreciate it. :)

    Man, that tone is awesome Tag! I've listened to most everything you have posted on your SoundClick page and I dig the Fuchs tones the most. Also your playing was fantastic!!

    Funny enough I dug the tone on the first of the two Fuchs clips (the bright one) quite a bit more. I love the bite your tone had on that clip!

    For some reason, the clips are not showing up when I try to access the site.

    I'm not sure that I prefer this to the earlier Fuched one - but I still prefer the CT22.
    Can't help it.

    Best, Pete.

    Dude - I thought you LIKED people to put vibrato on bent notes? As I recall, there was about a 40-page screed on the board because you complained about someone NOT doing it!

    I think the Fuchs clips over the backing absolutely decimate the Bruno/Trex Mudhoney combo. I do LOVE the Bruno nailed clip without the Mudhoney. The Bruno/Trex Mudhoney clip sounds liek a lame OD pedal to me. It also has an order of magnitude less gain than the Fuchs clip. Tag, record a Fuchs clip with a similar amount of gain to Bruno clip for comparison sake. Otherwise, it is apples vs oranges...hi gain vs lo gain.

    I agree with Pete that the Bruno CT22 Nailed clip is great. Far far better than the clip of the CT over the backing.

    All of the clips still are mixed poorly with lots of digital clipping and compression artifacts.

    Sorry Tag... I need to teach you how to use the 1820M. Different universe compared to that Roland thingie you use.
