    Althrax posted a C#minor track back in December. Great track that's kinda been resurrected over on the LPF.... thanks Althrax. And thanks TexSunburt59 for posting it over there.


    gave a it run thru tonight trying to find some interesting mic placements. it's a bugger trying to find a good spot. found something I could live with and wanted to share it with you all. It's a close mic'd SM57.

    HT, I've really been listening to your clips lately and I'm liking the tones you're getting out of the D'Lite amp. This clip has a little more bite and not as silky sounding as some of your others,but still very good. Very Nice work HT.:D

    Thanks guys. I see what you mean, it definitely has a bit more top than what i usually track. I was actually trying to get some clarity around my low end and low mids, similar to what you hear in Scott's clips. Didn't expect the highs like this, but I imagine I could dial them back. I think these tones would make good use in a blues rock type setting perhaps.

    Yeah Man! I love the way you stay in pocket and really keep control. Cool Stuff Tub! Is that your D'lite? Still waiting for mine but I guess the NAMM show is holding it up. Your tone is just killing Bro!

    Thanks Ed and jsPax7.

    yeah, this is the DLite Ed. I was kinda surprised upon listening to playback that this kind of tone came from it. The only big thing I did differently compared to other clips is pump up the overdrive. On this clip I was running a bit more overdrive level than I normally do.

    It is kinda neat to tease out some differently flavors of tone. Nothing scientific, I just twisted some knobs and moved the mic around.

    You're getting some crackin tones and playing your heart out in the process. Really chewy.

    Hi Hottub.

    Great tone and playing! I enjoyed the rock flavor of your impro.

    Another awesome BT by Althrax. Thanks for posting it.

    I tried to record one take using Gear Box simulation. I am still learning how to record with this sofware and I'm not even close to a real amp tone, but it is still fun to record over a nice BT.

    Hi Hottub,

    Thanks for the comments.

    The S1 is a great guitar. I bought this one about a year ago and have been using it a lot. This guitar still amazes me with it's tone and playability. I liked it so much that I bought myself a S2 a few months ago and love them both. Great value for money, specially if you go for an used one, and very reliable instrument.
