Sounds great and thick!

Was it pretty loud when you recorded it?Are they V60s on the Tele?

thanks

Started out HRM, mid boost, pab, switches in skyliner mode - very thick, then eventually moved to non-HRM, and more towards the 70's style of voicing - and also turned the pab off and cranked the treble and backed down the gain.

Gary,

Don't know how often you use the non-hrm lead tones - after I adjusted the OD trim pot on the board they got very thick and creamy - I actually mistakenly thought I was playing hrm this morning!

Huh... so a Glaswerks makes a tele sound like a

Jackson...cool !

I knew you 'd get some strange replies on that one. I actually agree with you in a way a bit. It actually reminded me of my old 78 BC Rich Mockingbird tonewise. That was a Koa /maple thick/chewy sounding sucker and that's what this sounded like.. For years I've preferred Strat-types with hb's in the bridge and s/c's in the other 2 positions ,as I just 'need' that familiar tone for me. Everyone has different 'goals' tonewise though.

Also my only Telecaster is an 80's US Fender that's just very chunky sounding and I thought this reminded me of that also.

Anyway , I have no idea if I'm agreeing with your post but I think I understand what you meant ! :) (I think lol) I mean no disrespect to anyone, but I don't think his post was out of line at all.. I love certain Jackson tones

p.s. holy crap the Giants pulled it off.. I had to root for the underdog since my Cowboys did themselves in

LV, thanks for sharing this. Actually non HRM is all I've been using so far- I like having the gain boosted 2nd lead option. I'm using an ash tele w/ kinmans, and can get pretty smooth lead tones in essentially '80s mode. I haven't been inside my Glasswerks yet, beyond moving the feedback loop tap, so I've never adjusted the HRM stage. Based on the times I've tried HRM, I do need to adjust it to get closer to the classic RF tone.

I've never played a Jackson, but I associate them with 80's metal tones, which is about as far away from the Glaswerks as possible. When you mention thick/chewy sounding, that I agree with :)

Gary,

I'd recommend spending a Saturday set up like this - playing, adjusting, playing, adjusting.... :)

Actually, I wouldn't.... Put the amp down. There is no reason to have it tipped in this dangerous position.

Oh man, this makes me want to own a glaswerks even more...sh*t!
Since this whole EU-RoHS thing is hindering a simple direct order, i was already giving up on the glaswerks subject - and then you post something like this...
just not fair.


at all!



awesome tones btw! :YinYang
