The playing (I know the playing isn't the best) or the sound that bad? 55 views and no comments.....

I thought all the clips were great sounding. Very smoothe jazz sounding. I could not really hear the difference from the first neck pickup clip to the second. Same with the bridge clips.

But I could tell the bridge pickup sound from the neck, that was forsure.

It sounded very mesa boogie. What amp was used?

Great clips and cool sound man.

Take care.

There's very little difference in tone (to my ears) between the post-OD tonestack clips and the bypassed clips...probably because you set it up that way. However, the post-OD clips did seem to lack some of the dynamics of the bypassed clips. May be my imagination, but it just seemed like there was a subtle harmonic that was missing.

Either way, that's a great sounding amp! Just the inspiration I needed to drag my amp back to the garage for a few tweaks. ;)

Thanks much. The differences in the clips is very subtle, you can hear it on the leading edge of the notes. There is a touch more "skritch" or bite with the stack enabled. Also there is a little less sustain with the stack enabled. Listen to the very last note of the bridge without post overdrive stack and you will see what I mean. It hangs there for a long time.

The amp is one that I built myself and doing a little fine tweaking on right now. Trying to find that happy place :)

Norm you are right there is a little something different between the two. I did have the amps feedback enabled and lessens the effect between the two modes. With the feedback disabled the difference is very apparent.

The clips are a little (or a lot) mid heavy. Need to dial it in a bit more.

You just can't do enough tweaking...... on amps that is......
