Ok, at the risk of some embarrassment, I could really use some help with something that has been driving me crazy. Take a listen to this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-V8HBs3j5w Assume for the sake of argument that I like the tones he is getting thick, crunchy and harmonic. He is using a PSA-1 preamp through a Peavey 2x12 Transtube amplifier. I have a PSA-1 through a Peavey Classic 50/50 power amp into an EarCandy BuzzBomb 2x12 cab. I would think that I could get similar if not better tones than what I hear in this video, but my tones sound nothing like it. It is most noticeable to me when he uses preset #8, the VanHalen setting. His sounds chunky and harmonic, and mine sounds very weak in comparison with very little harmonics. Since it seems that all other things are relatively equal, the only real difference I can see is the guitar (I am assuming that the ME50 is only being used for reverb/delay, but perhaps some gain is being employed as well?). I have an old Carvin with a Suhr DSH+ in the bridge, while the guy in the video has a Schecter with EMGs. Is it the EMGs? Is it the Schecter? Is it the shoes (or the pajamas)? My 50/50 probably could use some new tubes, but could that make all the difference? I know this is a very low-end set-up, but it is making me crazy, so I would really appreciate any thoughts you may have as to why my setup sounds so much weaker than this video when I have basically the same gear. Thanks!
