    I suppose the mighty M/B isn't to popular around here, but I offer this clip for your approval. :RoCkIn

    This is called Street Race Right click, save as if you have dial-up.
    I hope you like it. :BEER

    Thanks for listening. It's funny that you mention "lower gain stuff", because a lot of people don't like the TriAxis preamp because it doesn't have enough gain for them. Just goes to show that there's a wide opinion on tone, and what's good.

    I like the III a lot too. I use the III mode on the TriAxis for heavy rhythms.

    Great stuff! Tight rhythm with nice bite. Smooth leads with just the right balance of clarity and compression. Other gear used?

    For those that had a hard time downloading via the direct link (like I did), just use MP3Lizard's search function to find the song title.

    This isn't a style I listen to at all, so take it with a grain of salt, but I thought the tones and playing were superb. The lead tones were very smooth and pleasing to the ear and there was great energy and melodic feel throughout. Nicely done.

    I like EMG pickups. The preamp is a TriAxis, and I use the 2:90 power amp. I have a Lexicon MPX-1, and that's it. Pretty simple really. I use the Mark IV mode for leads.

    Thanks a lot mang. I seen the "with a grain of salt" outta' the corner of my eye when I was replying to the previous post; and thought you were going to hammer me. But cool. I'm glad you liked it!

    A big thing for me is translating the sound of my cab to a recording, but I think I have it pretty close, or at least something that sounds acceptable.

    As a fifteen year boogie man I will say that that tone is all boogie. I love it. Great playing too. I'm diggin it.

    The definitive Boogie player in my book is John Petrucci. He uses practically everything they make. I actually like leadfootdriver's recorded tone better.:eek: Perhaps I shouldn't have given up so completely on the EMG's years ago...

    Glad you like the tone. :dude

    great playing. the lead tone is excellent. rhythm is just a touch bright for my tastes, i gravitate toward a slightly darker more mid-punchy tone.
