    I really liked that! Saved the clip. Great tone and playing. Not to many Hi-Gain guys here, I am and I loved it.

    I love the ET65s. ALOT... I also have a Veteran 30. Right now, I'm running two ET65s in my Bogner 2x12" cab, but I have run one of each and it sounds great. Thicker with the Veteran 30, I think.

    So which speaker is what in your demo?

    It's both. Even though the Veteran is louder, I tried to make it as uncomplicated as possible by mixing them evenly. Then I EQ'd them as best as I could to what I hear coming from the cab.

    Today, I think it's pretty close. Tommarrow I might think it sounds like crap. :p

    I think it's hard trying to get THE sound of a paper driver to come out of a monitor with a plastic cone woofer crossed over to a titanium tweeter. It can be frustrating.

    Hey , the guitar tone sounds awesome. .Are you saying you've mixed 1 speaker to 1 side and the other to the other side , or just blended them , and then eq'd them to sound like they each really sounded in the room ,or eq'd them to sound similar? PRobably a really dumb question but I be confused .. lol

    Both speakers together, so 2 tracks per guitar sound here on the computer. I record, and then normalize, and then put the EQ on the Guitar Buss to EQ both tracks as one guitar sound.

    I'm a huge fan of room mics. I could have made it even more real. I don't know why I didn't think of it. Even just a little room in the sound gives your recorded tone more depth. I guess I was carried away with getting the right EQ on the recording.

    Nice tone. Love most of their songs, but I can't get into his singing!

    Thanks guys. But I listened to it on the iPod, and it was a little dull. My monitors are so good that crappy ear phones, and car stereos just don't have the resolution. I readjusted my monitors, and slightly crisped the guitars a little bit.

    How's this? Same link by the way.
