1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Ok so I'm tired of the overly nasal sound of the PXR4 internal microphone. today i bought a SM57 and a ART preamp. I did a quick clip with the Thunderbird amp and the Chapin (bridge (tele) pickup), the Thunderbird has it's inbuilt "dampulator" on step 2 of three (the kids gets violent othervise :mad: ) so volume is not that high.

    So better than usual?? No Eq or comression, i want to avoid that on clips, if possible.

    Yeah, I do think it is an improvment Anders :) ... but what really matters are if you are satisfied. Nice Tele tone there.

    Awesome tone. I guess I need a thunderbird now too.

    Is it just me or is something clipping out?
