Sweet playing and tone!! Love the Tele sound with the Dumble like amps. The outtro licks were way too cool.

Thanks guys, it's a great match to me. Between the ZD in the clean channel and using the OD channel in the D'Lite I've got some really nice OD tonal options.
I also use Alf's distortion and his dual boost.

Perfectly executed! Great feel, playing in the pocket, knowing when to leave space!

Have you thought about a career in music? LOL!

You da man Chuck!

NICE! I gotta get a Zen. People say the zendrive sounds best with humbuckers - this clip proves otherwise.
Are you running the amp squeaky clean?

Yeah,man. Between the Soloway clips and this - you are brutalizing the egos of us ham-fisted flubs! Tasty playing - cool pedal. I need to kick mine in more often - one of most amp like pedals I have ever played.

Wow, tasty playing!!! Question, with a more blackface sounding amp can you get the same rich midrange, or is most of that due to the amp?
Thanks

Hey man.....no fair. This was my backing to jam on!! Now you come and kill it. I did hear you sneak in that tasty altered triad lick at :59. At least I have pinched one thing from you!

Thanks Les, I was pretending that it was a recording session and I tried to play w/ taste so the producer would keep it!

Yup, clean as a whistle and at low volume. Thanks...

I've been at it forever (47 years, yikes!) it would be sad if I didn't have something to show for it. But thanks for the comments, and yes, the ZD is a Killer pedal! I can go to any gig and know that my OD tone is covered no matter what amp. Alf is a monster! It's as if he hears the way I do but has the know how to "make it happen" Thanks Alf, you've made my job easier...

I'm thinking that the D'Lite has something to do w/ it but I've had good results w/ everything from a Crate Powerblock to any decent tube amp. You can always tweek the pedal to get what you want. I would love to try it w/ a DeLuxe and a G12-65. Alf tests them w/ a DeLuxe I think.

REAL nice Chuck!

Thanks Fraize!

Scotti,

This recording is really old, (3 -4 years) from the days when I was recording on a Fostex all in one 8-track. I think that I posted in Jan but it came back to life...You've done SO many tasty takes to this track bro...I don't think you need to pinch anything from me, you've got your own voice man. But thanks for the good words!

Chuck

Thanks for the support Pat....

And yes, the last track "ZD Blues" is the Zendrive. (as well as PAF)

I've never had a Zen 2 or a 2290 so I don't have an informed opinion. I do use (and love) Alf's distortion pedal tho...
