    Here's a clip using my strat, a tonespotter, and Normster#1 with 5881's in place of 6L6's. I think it's crunchier? (I'll try to make a comparison clip tonight using 6L6's.) I really like tone at the mid and higher end of the neck, but really low notes sound a little rough. What do you guys think?

    tonespotter---whats it???

    is that amp distortion--shiii&*--juicy:AOK

    !!!! hmmm-a tad crunchy...like it alot..
    are you & Norm in cahoots!!???

    tubes are akin to shoelaces for me!-i know nuttin'''--

    -not sure how to give you feed back on the low end-some root/5th stuff mite be useful--like a cupla shots-then some sustained semi-power chords....

    Thanks John! Yes, Norm and I are good friends. I've built the cabinets for his amps (but not this one). Here are some photos of #1, if you're interested.

    A tonespotter is an Eminence speaker.

    You're right about the low end. I'll get some low note stuff on tonight.

    Nice playin' Loren, and that amp ain't soundin' too shabby either. ;)
    I guess we'll have to see about bleeding off some of that low end in the OD. (Or you can just do a lot of palm muting on the bass notes. lol)
    Yeah, he's my partner in crime. Such a picky bastige, though. Always complaining about his tone. One of these days I'm just gonna cut him off. I would have done it long ago, but he's such a damn fine cabinet builder. LOL

    Nice clip! I noticed the trademark Tonespotter midscoop. Try a test for me. Solo the solo track in the software. Push up 1500hz by about 2 to 4db. See what you think. If you like it, replace the Spotter with a Red White and Blue!!

    Nice tones in any event!

    Thanks Scott. I'll have a go at it tonight. I'll also get some "lows" recorded. I wanted to see what you think about them....
