    This next videos Mesa Boogie LoneStar has been modified by a friend of mine.

    I've recorded one with my MM Axis, and another one with my 335.
    In both I start from clean, to crunch, to lead.
    Wet line is on a 65 TRRI.

    The bad guitar player is as he comes from factory.:rolleyes:

    Muy buen tono, me encantó el primer video y en unos minutos veré el segundo.

    Me gustaría oír esa mesa sin el TC eso si lo digo .

    Por favor cuando tengas tiempo postea uno sin el TC

    Sounds very good to me!!!!

    Tu español si que es bueno, tio. ;)

    I've recorded everything with the guitars directly into the LoneStar. The amp's loop is hardwired (nothing in the loop), and the Slave output goes into the GForce's input, and from there, once the signal has been proccesed, it goes to a Twin Reverb Reissue.
    I mean the tone is quite similar as the one you could expect from a only dry amp.

    Thanks, macmax77 :AOK

    Hi,
    the modification was made by a technitian friend of mine, Pedro Vecino.
    I don't know the exact details, but basically the amp is full retubed (a set of NOS in the preamp, and optimally biased quality power tubes. TAD, I think), and some the values of the preamp polarization has been touched to avoid harsh, as you can see in the video.

    The amp is very well balanced, I love the cleans, and the leads.

    Your amp is one of the best sounding amps i have seen/heard here.

    Excuse me, I forgot about TRRI.
    That is a Twin Reverb 65 Reissue, the blond one you see by the LoneStar ... I use it as wet line because I had it there (I don't like effects loops) .

    Let me tell Pedro about this topic, man ... :jo :D

    really great tone!! clean and lead..

    How much of an improvement was from stock to you "mod"?

    I would love to listen to a more properly recordered demo too!!

    Hi, thanks for your comments, konstantine,

    I bought the amp modded, and I have never played one from stock, so I can't answer your question ... :(

    When you ask for a more properly recorded demo, you mean only dry tones? I'm affraid camera compresion is unavoidable ...
    Anyway, I must say as far as I'm not using the effects loop, the timbre (and the feel) you hear there is the same to the dry one. :rolleyes:

    when I say "properly recorder" I mean with a mic and maybe just audio, to avoid the compression of the camera mic and of youtube...

    but anyway, thanks for posting this!!
