    Sounds fantastic, although your "low volume" and mine might not be the same thing!

    This was low enough that you could play it in an apartment and not bother the neighbors :)

    Interesting, Lou..........that sounds a LOT like my Z Route 66 CRANKED, with 'buckers.

    In other words....sounds great!

    It's funny - I was just thinking of how obvious the Les Paul tone is.

    I dig the way Lou does demos of his equipment. I have said before but it's worth mentioning again - it's always about letting the gear shine and not about dazzling us with speedy chops. He lets the notes ring so you hear the the entire tone, he doesn't rush through things, and he always has a great quality recording. Good on you Lou!!! I know that whenever I have recorded anything I was constantly aware of the fact that there was a microphone on me. Lou's demos sound like he's not nervous or inhibited by the fact that he's being recorded - ya know what I mean? It was probably a lousy way of describing my thought. I always get nervous when recording. It doesn't seem to bother him or reflect in his demos.

    Looking forward to some more Lou - ya better get to work!!!! LOL!!!!! :D

    Jim,

    The Rte 66 is one of my favorite amps....Dr. Z's modern classic.

    TGP'er Miles Long brought his 50 watt Glaswerks over and I was sold on it. Sounded easily as good as my Carol-Ann (OD1-100) with a slightly different character. Didn't have to crank either amp. Suffice it to say I am on the waiting list too (but I think I'm still over a year away from getting one).

    I love it, Lou...! Sounds great - very full and not at all plinky, the way some amps get when you have them down low.
