    Only four years, eh? I must say, it sounds like you've been playing much longer; many people can't play a complete song that well after such a short time, let alone in time! Oh, yeah, very convincing Sabbath tone, too :).

    Wow, would you mind sharing your preset? Sounds dead on to me.
    One of the most "exact to... (insert song here)" presets I've heard from the HD500 ;) Congrats man! Nice playing and the voice is good, too bad Ozzy has that "special" voice that makes it so difficult to replicate, but your's doesn't sound bad at all.

    Thanks guys. I'd be happy to share the preset. I'll upload it later today when I get a sec.

    FYI, it's the Divided by 13 amp.

    And my beloved Les Paul Standard (08) with Bareknuckle Mules. I wanted a Les Paul the first time I saw The Song Remains the Same when I was 15. It took 21 years, but I finally got it. :D

    Please PLEASE, record something with your Tool preset. I'm still deciding between the 11R and the HD500 and so far all your presets sound really good, but the Tool one will really help me to decide, as it's in the ballpark of what I'm looking for in my sound.

    ;)
